Naked Ladies: Pigmentation revisited

There are two distinct can't be environment that 
accounts for major differences in pigmentation.

I just had two A. belladonna's, from the Les Hannibal excursion, 
bloom in the same location (very hot Davis, in 30% shade), one is 
dark pink (but not as dark as the darkest that I have) and the other 
very light pink (whitish but not white).

And, thanks to a cue from Bill the Bulb Baron, I looked at the scapes 
and found that the dark pink one was anthocyanin-red whereas the 
whitish one had little or no anthocyanin pigment; basically green.

There seems to be a wide range of pinks and pattern of tepal 
pigmentation among the A. belladonna that I've acquired.

The only white-white amaryllid that I have has a hollow-stemmed scape 
(this too was obtained from Hannnibal's garden, undoubtedly from the 
Crinum patch).
