why have my multi coloured everlasting sweet peas all come through deep pink this year?

I put in some seeds for everlasting multi coloured sweetpeas last year that I had previously taken and stored from plants I had six years ago at another address and they have all come up deep pink this year, I'm really disappointed, does anyone know why this may have happened?



The basic plant is usually pink - the seeds you collected seem to have been from bred hybrids, and quite often, the seeds do not come "true" - in other words, any seed produced will be back to the basic species.
