A Contribution Toward Standardization of Color Names in Horticulture, 
Application of the Universal Color Language to the Colors of the Royal 
Horticultural Society's Colour Chart, by Robert D. Huse and Kenneth L. 
Kelly, Edited by Donald H. Voss. The American Rhododendron Society 
Publications Committee 1984. Although this is an old publication, it is 
worth knowing about. One of the tables lists the RHS Colour Chart 
numbers with their corresponding ISCC-NBS color names and numbers, 
Munsell notations, HCC colour names and numbers and CIE chromaticity 
coordinates (x, y) and Daylight Reflectance (Y).
