"I'd like some peach roses". The words guaranteed to bring out a stress rash on any florist. Especially when followed up with the words "You know, a pretty apricot colour". Can I just say that the name of the colour may bear little resemblance to the colour that you may imagine when you say it.

Lets look at the peach. Beautiful orangey red colour with compliments of yellows and orange..

So a peach roses would be something like this? . or like the cherry brandy rose.  Not really.

I bet that you had something more like this in your head - . See the problem. Lets not call it peach.

Lets look at apricot - .  Beautiful orange glow.

Apricot rose - or . ????

or are they Salmon???
Aaaagghhh!!
