Some plants can change color do to the soil. (If there is a lot of acid in it etc.) I don't know much about Lily's, so this is just a guess. Oh, I just found this. Apparently someone else had the same thing happened, and asked about it. Here is the answer.
Sure, if the acidity or p.h. of the soil changes. Have you ever seen a snowball bush? They can have blue, white, or pink flowers based on soil conditions. Also I wonder if it could be from cross pollenation.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Wow, that is so weird! Maybe it reverted to its original stock? But I would have thought white was the original.

hi everyone - about 4 years back, my mother-in-law gave me a potted easter lilly. after the holiday, i stuck it in my garden, thinking, "hey if it grows it grows". well, it did! the next 2 years it bloomed beautiful white blossoms. then, last summer and this year, it has bloomed red! maybe its something in my soil? please say that this has happened to someone else 'cause i think it's an omen that i am going to hell... lol...my mother-in-law has never heard of this!
