Lightroom's new masking tool workflow

I watched 4 videos about the replacement of the selective tools with masking and I (think) I undestand how to use them, except for dealing with the luminance and color ranges that have been elevated to "independent status:"

 

Assume that I have an entire field of lilies with orange anthers and I only want to increase the saturation of the anther in only one specific lily. In the previous Lightroom Classic version I would place a radial filter in the center of the target flower, choose color range and point to one of the anthers within the radial filter. 

 

How would I apply a selective color adjustment such as this in the current Lightroom version?

 

Thanks in advance!

Apply a Global Luminance or Color mask, then click on the [Subtract] button to Brush away the mask in areas where not wanted.  There are sure to be other methods 🙂

Example- I want to color one pink flower as 'Green'-

Color Range mask selects all 'Pink', the subtract Brush removes mask from other 'pink' flowers.

Thank you, this is what I was guessing the method might be but I was hoping that I could leave the subtraction to Lightroom's AI

Apply your Radial or Brush, or whatever as you like, then you want to apply an Intersect to it Intersect Mask with)  select color range. (click on the three dots ...)

 

In case you did not watch the following video, and as Intersection is used in it, I suspect not. Long but mote inclusive.
