summertime clematis

This flower was blooming on the flintstone wall which forms the Master's walled garden at St Cross.

I'm not quite sure what colour to assign to it!
what a stunning flower - magenta maybe?

Love the contrast of the deep colour of the petals and white of the wall

What a stunningly rich colour.

I would definitely call it magenta. One of the richest purples with a pink tinge.

I was thinking burgundy. But I think Casablanca's suggestion of magenta is probably more apt.

For me it is somewhere between magenta and burgundy whatever that colour may be.
January 24th, 2019  
Love that color too!!

I think I'd call it claret colour. Looks a lot like one in my garden called 'Niobe'.

Lovely.... burgundy? The nearest 'official colour' to that would be magenta, I guess? = red + blue for mixing coloured lights, as I recall from Physics (not Art!) lessons. I'm more interested in the contrasting textures... the soft petal against the hardness of the rock.

Beautiful colour, whatever the name may be.
