Photo a day – Crimson, carmine

Crimson is a strong, red color, inclining to purple. It originally meant the color of the kermes dye produced from a scale insect, Kermes vermilio, but the name is now sometimes also used as a generic term for slightly bluish-red colors that are between black and rose.

Carmine is the general term for some deep red colours that are very slightly purplish but are generally slightly closer to red than the colour crimson is.

The spectacular paintbrush lily is one of South Africa’s most striking bulbous plants.
