It is not unusual for prickly pear cactus to have different colored flowers on the same plant and even on the same pad. I am sure there is a very good reason for this, but it certainly eludes me. I see all sorts of analogies with differences within families, two brothers that are polar opposites and many other variations in the world we live in. Each flower only blooms for a day but there are so many flowers on one plant that they bloom for a couple of weeks.
