DARK PURPLE PETUNIA; THE FLOWER AFTER THE BUD

For someone who wants to see the flower after the bud ; the bud is beautiful and is the real coulour of the flowers as well but for some reason my camera accepts the coulour of the bud but not for the flowers so in the pictures they are bluer than they are, they are dark purple like the bud.

SO HERE ARE THE FLOWERS AND THE BUD OF THE DARK PURPLE PETUNIA :
