Deer are beautiful if they don't e
Last year, I got the ADS books and most of what I got was not useful to where I'm at. I didn't join this year as I didn't want all that paper. But you know . . .if they printed those color chips within their publication (rather than charging the $60 for them) so there would be widespread access to the colors, I may just go back to being a member (beyond local dahlia society member.)

And as one that lives in the northwest, I know what color a salmon is. But is it supposed to be . . . fresh cut open raw salmon? Baked? Half baked? Smoked? How about Chinook, Copper River, Silver or Sockeye? Rolling my eyes.

And Ted, that looks like orange to me! Reminds me of a new one I grew last year, AC CJ (that I thought was AC Firefly.) Guess we all have to be looking at the same flower to come to perfect accord of color identification . .. . maybe not then either. Hilarious!
