Interesting Flower

I came across an interesting mum the other day. It was a beautiful plant with a nice lavender color…except for one flower, that one flower was half lavender, half yellow. But what caused the yellow in an otherwise lavender plant?

Without having testing done on the plant, it is hard to give an exact cause. But it most likely is because of a genetic mutation in the one flower and it partially reverted back to a parent color. That is my best guess as to what would cause this to happen. Even though I do not have an answer, it is still and interesting flower none the less. So I thought that I would share it.
