Clarence's Challenge

:  Shall I never see an iris of puce?"

I assume this was a rhetorical question, a bit of effective poetic license....  

But if we're talking about something with more brown than RHS 187A and more
purple than 200A -- I suggest THINGS TO COME is a good example of an iris
bearing a significant amount of puce.  The falls have a golden ground, very
heavily washed red-violet, so their color appears to range from ruby, through
puce, to black depending on the direction of the light.  One of the local wits
even suggested naming it PUCE, but I declined.
