We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
What color is pink? Here in the USA it is a red with low saturation. Actually the dictionary definition is:
"any of a group of colors bluish red to red in hue, of medium to high lightness, and of low to moderate saturation"
Translated that seems to mean light red even if the red has some blue in it.
Hue is a color term. The hue of pink lies between red, white and magenta colors.

Nowhere in these definitions are colors that have yellow in them.

In the dahlia color charts there are several chips in both the pink and dark pink charts that have more than just a little bit of yellow in them. An example is PK 15.

I do not have my scanner working right now and this is the best I could do of matching PK 15. Is this color pink?
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
