Its bloomed last year in original colors with pinks tips on the petals. It surprises me with two alba. blooms this year. The bloom on top seems to have some deformation on the lip and unwilling to open up fully, while the bottom one looks fabulous.

First picture are this year’s blooms and second one shows the blooms from last year!

Did it bloom when growing temperatures were warmer or cooler last year? That can account for differences in color.
It's a dry heat.
