I think you are absolutely dead-on about it being a factor in color 
perception.  Just comparing a bloom in sun and in shade or in 
artificial light can affect how the color is perceived.  When I have 
a broken stalk that has bloomed inside, I always carry it out to 
daylight to see it.

Nope.  Better ask Betty about the possibilities here.  Rebloom is a 
scarce thing here at best and nearly all are yellow.  And the others 
sure aren't red.
