Color is a very subjective thing and we do not always agree on what color we are looking at. It is hoped that this chart will help when trying to describe the color of bromeliad parts. Instead of referring to a color such as red or light-yellow one can use a number from this chart and make reference to this chart.
This color chart appeared in Paul Isley's book Tillandsia and we thank him for allowing us to reproduce it here.
