Boy, I'm having a heck of a time keeping my david veritys green. When I first put the overwintered pots outside last month I gave them too much sun and burned the crap out of the them. I cut them both back by half(which I had to do anyway) so the greener leaves closer to the base of the plant were exposed. I've been gradually giving them sun again the last couple weeks and both plants were doing pretty well, remaining green. However, yesterday and today several hours of sun browned even the new growth on one of them and burned the crap out of the other one again. This is really getting frustrating. I'm not having trouble with any other plants. Even the schumannii, which has gotten just as much sun, is very green with no sign of sunburn. I remember last spring the DV were sensitive as well and initially burned a bit.
