Hi,
  I believe the same is also true for the Screw Fruit Bush [Helicterus isora] locally called Murudsheng, where the flowers change from red to purple - though not seen here in these photographs.
              With regards,
                Neil Soares.

.. The change in the color  is due to the pollination process..
 Once the flower is pollinated, it changes it s color so as to convey the next approching pollinator that you have nothing to do.!:)
Flower is Clever.!
