|I think having the colour chips online makes a lot of sense, Each chip with its number could also be CC (Creative Commons) Licensed, so that growers could put them next to their flowers on their catalogues - those growers who put other classification details anyway. It would help to show that Dahlia A is a yellower orange than Dahlia B even if screens differ; and if Dahlia A was photographed in very different weather from Dahlia B, giving different colour distortions.
CC licensed images can be made freely available for commercial purposes (e.g. attribution license), but somewhere in the online grower catalogues, ADS would need to be acknowledged as the creator of the colour chips.
