RHS stands for Royal Horticultural Society and 71A refers to a color on a chart the RHS published - as I understand it, many years ago.  I've been told it's long out of print and nearly impossible to obtain now - anyone know know more about that?  It does make it difficult for those of us without it to visualize a given color!!

I didn't like the other dozen photos of this, and tried again, with forced flash.  I like this one.
Can someone explain to be (a sort of newbie) what the "(RHS 71A)" et al in descriptions means?
Thanks, in advance for the explanation.
