I have had Cyp reginae for several decades in Iowa where the weather changes can be fairly great in a short time. The flowers of Cyp. reginae are very succeptable to heat, changing the color even on the same stem due to temp changes. One year, we had a fairly warm spring and the entire bed was nearly all whites. i have a slide of two flowers on the same plant where the temperature went from warm to cool during their late development - one has a ight pouch while the other is noticably darker.

I think this is common in the species, not just is a form.
