White: Like a scrap of paper buffeted by a gentle breeze, this common Flutterscotch flutters around the garden. It's not particularly pretty, or useful, but I'm sure something wants to eat it!
Red: Red is nature's warning color - alerting the wary to danger. But this is a Flutterscotch, so in this case, it's just to show off.
Green: A Green Flutterscotch is a master of disguise. It is easy to mistake it for leaves blowing in the breeze.
Blue: Blue Flutterscotches are less common than the red or yellow variety. They waft about ineffectually, but they are quite pretty.
Pink: A girl (that I may or may not have liked) once told me that the Pink Flutterscotch reminded her of a kiss. When I asked if I could remind her instead, she ran away! I learned a harsh lesson that day - stop eating onion sandwiches!
Black: Like a flake of ash this Flutterscotch wafts over the garden. Of all the many colors, black is probably the most practical - it doesn't show the dirt and its acceptable at almost any social function.
Brown: Brown isn't the brightest of colors, is it? This little Flutterscotch can be confused with the Mothdrop at first glance, but as you will see, it only comes out during the day and it is much more delicate than its night-time cousin.
Yellow: Yellow is the color of sandy beaches, the middle of a fried egg... oh and these Flutterscotches.
Orange: If someone peeled a tangerine and then cleverly fastened the peel together, it might look a bit like this little creature, but I'm sure it wouldn't fly.
Purple: The largest and most regal of the Flutterscotches, this creature will make Flutterscotch Romancers all over the world envious.

Just so you don’t get confused: there is no such creature in Viva Piñata called merely "Flutterscotch." Rather than have variants, every color of Flutterscotch is its own species. So for example, a Green Flutterscotch is a wholly separate animal than a Yellow Flutterscotch. A green and yellow cannot romance, and romancing a green does not give you an award for the yellow romance
You get separate awards for residency, romance, and master romance for each separate species of Flutterscotch.
The color is important, as several other species have requirements specifying a Flutterscotch color.
The first Flutterscotch you get will be white. You cannot attract any other color; you must force their creation through having a White eat something special (listed under the variants part, even though they’re not technically variants). You can’t even have Gretchen hunt for the colored ones; you can buy Whites and evolve them, but you’ll never be able to hunt for a colored one directly. Also, breeding any Flutterscotch produces a White, regardless of the parents’ color.
Flutterscotches are among the prettiest and most peaceful creatures you’ll see on Piñata Island. Easy to take care of and almost always avoiding fights, a rainbow of Flutterscotches would be a pretty cool visual for any garden, and is in fact a necessary requirement for another species, the Jameleon.
Different color Flutterscotches are separate species, not variants.
While the game (Encyclopedia and pinata awards) treats the Flutterscotches as different species, evolving Flutterscotches does not count toward the Evolver achievement.
Romancing two Flutterscotches of any color will always result in a White Flutterscotch offspring.
The only color wildcard Flutterscotch that can be hatched in-game is a white one. A one-of-a-kind Red Flutterscotch wildcard was hand-crafted and donated by Rare developers as a special contest prize, however it cannot be hatched in-game.
