Astilbe changing color

I have a lot of astilbes as I have a lot of moist shade. They do very well in these conditions. But the oddest thing has happened over the last few years. I have had several cultivars change colors from a nice deep pink to a wishy-washy pale pink. The plants are healthy and vigorous--but a different color.

I have read about other people having perennials of one kind or another change color but never read an explanation. These are the exact same plants, one of which I have had a good 25 years. It's very disappointing as I don't like this washed-out color at all.
