Rhodohypoxis milloides 'Claret'

20th June 2006

I have great problems knowing what to call this colour - I have just seen someone describe it as "deep fuchsia" , so I'm not the only one. If you went into any fabric shop in the country you would find an odd roll of cottony stuff in this colour that nobody ever buys because it has no conceivable use. There are a few cultivars of R.milloides in circulation with names like 'Claret' and 'Damask' which all imply reddishness in a way that is completely non-specific.
