Pearl, my own first reaction was also AMETHYST FLAME. I loved its
color and texture. A current variety that is clearly of this same
heritage is SWINGTOWN. As I age I have trouble sometimes pulling up
names from memory ("sticky file drawer" I sometimes explain), and
tend to think of Swingtown as my "Amethyst Flame" in the "now." It
has much of the same character, but in modern dress and form.
