My favourite would to be Plum. Not sure what I pair it with.

I know a Magenta Rose, a Scarlett Lily and an Olive Mary.

What about Tangerine?

I can add Tangerine in there! Thanks for your comment!

So many great names here. I have personally met a Mahogany, came across a dedication plaque for a Fuchsia, and have a cousin named Jade. I have considered Claret, Russet, Auburn, Sapphire, Hyacinth and Emerald in various combos.
