We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
Apricot is only a "Sylvia" color, what is the dahlia color? Most color names have no definitions, meaning no one has determined a specific color range for that color in terms of Red, Blue, and Green. There are thousands of color chips at the paint store and all have names. Go to a different paint store and the colors will have 98% different names.

Dahlia nerds have their set of color chips and I have loaded them onto the Hollyhill website for all to see.
Everybody complains that they are not very accurate and are difficult to use. My biggest complaint is that bronze is not a color familiar to 99% of Americans and why is it listed as a dahlia color?
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
