kha sgo phan pa

Does anyone know what kha sgo phan pa means? I think it has something to do with composition structure. I found a quote in the Tengyur that says "'di man kha sgo phan pa," in a place where it seems to be listing names of flowers (?). In the rigs gzhung rgya mtsho, when describing why the tshad ma rnam 'grel is tshig le'ur byas pa, the Seventh Karmapa says, "yi ge brgyad pa rjes bsngags pa'i sdeb sbyor gyi bye brag kha sgo phan pa zhes bya ba'i tshigs su bcad pa yod pas tshig le'ur byas pa'o."
