Could it possibly be a reaction to stress for the bulb? Given by the sound of it you stripped the bed and never did anythign with it afterwards, maybe it is different just because it couldn't quite get the resources together to be "normal"? I am sincerely hoping I am wrong...... here's hoping you prove that by flowering it again the same colour next year. IT definitely gives a different appearance to it, that's for sure. Cheers.
