Where did the dark green color of the ranger uniform come from ?
Now days they use rit dye. I have heard that Green is the most difficult to produce from nature and the color was muted and not a strong color. So,how did this dark color green come about. Any formula that was used ,or particular plant ?

2: side question....
Are there any good books of dyes from natural plants ? I found one book that I thought might be good,but it lacked detail. All print and no pics. Seems to me that a book on this subject should at least show what colors are produced by each plant but a discription of the plant and photo of the plant. Maybe that is asking to much :] !
Any suggestions would be welcomed

Try www.pioneerthinking.com/natural-dyes#more254. You may find the green you are looking for. Scrool down the page to find the material needed for a given color. Hope this helps.
