    Thanks all!
    Connie, mine has opened more orange before. It opened once looking completely washed out. I can't remember who told me, but it has something to do with the temperature. A bud maturing in cooler temps will tend to have more saturated colors than one in hot temps. I think the amount of light has something to do with it as well. This blooming had more shade than the previous and was the best color I've gotten. I like your peachy orange though! My orange wasn't so nice. Maybe it's the difference in clones.
