Why do plants turn pink?
The pink colorations in plants (along with purples, reds, and blacks) are caused by a group of plant pigments called anthocyanins. … Because each leaf has less green coloration in it and more pink, these leaves need slightly more light than usual to achieve the same level of glucose output through photosynthesis.
