Thanks Ted! That's a useful resource even if our screens may interpret some of the colors differently. I think I may bookmark that page and refer to it when buying next year. Small note: I noticed that your Purple 13-26 is actually 1-12. So you have 1-12 on there twice.

I think i made some incorrect assumptions at first with the chart numbers since I hadn't seen the actual chips. I just figured 1 was the lightest and each color was darker as the numbers went up.
I have to think there are some of those colors that really don't exist (yet) in dahlias. Some of those purples (7,8&9)look blue.

It would almost be helpful if the ADS handbook had those chip numbers in the 2nd half of the book. Then, you could find the chip color you like, and quickly look through all the (i.e.) B Puple Semi Cactus - and find the color you like.
