If it were a horse what color would it be? All the pics look to be taken late in year, except Janice aka Sandnsea2 who took one in June and it had a greenish tint then.

The Clydesdale horses have a rich brown color.
The brown color of this semp varies according to the time of year and growing conditions. So far it appears to have a range of brown tones.

Sandnsea2 has growing conditions that tend to mute the colors and possibly cause shades of green at times. So far mine have not had any green tones, other than a deep olive green tint. I will keep a monthly photo record so we can see what this semp will do year round.
