Thanks Neil, I'll look for that one too. When I looked for amethyst Flame last night ( I didn't find it Mike, do you still have that picture?) I pulled up one called His Royal Highness that looked very similar.

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.
