Interestingly, the three colours in polish that are formed by "orange/violet/rose"+owa are, in Esperanto, formed by "orange/violet/rose"+kolor-. Rozkolor- is pink, oranĝkolor- is orange and violkolor- is purple.
All of the other main colours have their own distinct root words, again like in Polish.
It seems that Zamenhof just couldn't separate these colours from the objects that represent them in the tongue of his homeland!
