A friend gave my some St Joseph Lillis in pots here in SE Queensland Australia. But the flowers are white and not the reddish colour that are shown in photos from the US - why is this?

The original St Joseph lily is white.
When I was a child before the second world war, this lily used to grow wild in Malta along garigue type land along the sides of a valley- Wied Incita-, near the village of Attard.
It is called in Maltese "Bastun ta San Guzepp" which literally means St Joseph's staff.
Most statues & many of the paintings of St Joseph show him holding a staff consisting of one stem of St Joseph's lily with about 5 trumpet shaped white flowers on top
