I don't think your problem is really a problem as such, but just the plants confused reaction to our somewhat changeable weather conditions at the moment. The buds have opened too early or have just not had enough time to form their pigment before being triggered to open. If you get any later flowers then these should be ok.

those discoloured flowers are a result of cool weather during the flower formation
flowers will gain colour as the weather warms
