imagick 3.0.1RC1
RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.5
PHP 5.1.6

When using Imagick::newPseudoImage to create a radial gradient, this error appears in the Apache HTTP error log and the radial gradient is not created:

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'ImagickException' with message 'Unable to create new pseudo image: radial-gradient:#FF0000-#FFFFFF' in /var/www/html/energy/scripts/rg.php:6\nStack trace:\n#0 /var/www/html/energy/scripts/rg.php(6): Imagick->newpseudoimage(150,150, 'radial-gradient...')\n#1 {main}\n  thrown in /var/www/html/energy/scripts/rg.php on line 6

The documentation at is lacking but according to (search for "radial"):

"RADIAL_GRADIENT...Gradual radial passing from one shade to
another...Returns a rendered radial gradient image using the specified image size. Specify the desired shading as part of the filename (e.g. radial-gradient:red-blue or radial-gradient:#F00-#00F)."

I've tried using "RADIAL_GRADIENT" instead of "radial-gradient" and every other combination I could think of.

Utimately, I would like to feed Imagick::newPseudoImage RGB values instead of hex and save the created images to disk.

Reproduce code:
       // Create a new imagick object.
       $image = new Imagick();

       // A new image with radial gradient fading from red to white, 150 by 150 pixels.

       // Set the image format to PNG.

       // Output the image.
       header("Content-Type: image/png");
       echo $image;

Expected result:
A radial gradient image in PNG format should be displayed in the web browser.

Actual result:
The script returns nothing and logs a fatal error in the Apache HTTP log (see description for details).

this works with ImageMagick 6.5.8 in my test environment. Maybe you are running older ImageMagick that doesn't yet support this functionality?
