Excerpt from Familiar Flowers of Field and Garden: Described and Illustrated
The color of a ﬂower is an important factor in its identification, and I have exercised great care in the selection of an adequate name for it; at the same time, a few popular color-names have been retained when these seemed to be sufficiently near the truth, although certainly not exact. But ﬂowers vary in the presentation of a certain hue; two specimens of Lillnm Philadehz'cum are likely to show two dis tinct tones of red. Magenta-pink, crimson-pink, and pure pink are varieties of pink common in the Orchis family. Habenarfla fimbrflata is apt to vary from a tint to a light hue. Cypmpedium aca'ule is also a variable crimson-pink ﬂower.
