What color is a peach, really?

Gingers_Garden(z10a CA)July 28, 2005

While eating a peach I realized that a peach is not the color I think of as "peach". The peach reminded me of certain of my daylilies. The red/orange daylilies in the attached photo are (left to right) Leebea Orange Crush, Crimson Pirate and Chicago Fire, none of which have ever been described as "peach" colored. On the far right is Siloam Rainbow Magic which is in fact considered to be a delicate peach color. Notice the two real peaches in the pic. So if the peach daylily and the peach are not the same color, what color is the peach?
