Re: RHS Names & Numbers

Thank you Sharon for posting all the color names.  I don't have a color fan
(and probably won't ever get one at those prices!) but see the color names
used in iris descriptions all the time without a clue as to what they mean.
 Is there some pattern to the color numbers that you or someone else can tell
us?  Like, does each group go from light to dark or something?  For instance,
does 75B Rose Purple, 75C Phlox Purple, 75D Rose Purple go from light to dark
or vice versa in the 75 color?  And for another instance, does 75B Rose
Purple. 76C Lilac, 77A Violet Purple, 78A Imperial Purple or Petunia Purple,
79A Plum Purple go from red purple to blue purple?  With 87D Aster Violet
being most blue purple?
