I bought a white Chrysanthemum because it was healthy and the blooms caught my eye, but recetly I have noticed the increasing amounts of petals have started getting pinky / purple tinges to them.

Why are the petals turning pinky / purple?

Are the white ones hybrids returning to their original colour, or is there somethjing wrong with my Chrysanthemum?

Any advice or information wlecome.

Thanks in advance.

As the flowers get older slight colouration can occur, nothing to worry about.

Isn't it lovely! That pinky purple tinge on some of the petals is very attractive IMHO. :-)
