We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
I fixed Purple 2 chips. The classification book is focused on categorizing dahlia varieties into specific numeric classes for dahlia shows. As you say it could be useful for non show purposes too. I believe that people like lists of things. The ADS should make sure the classification books are posted to the website each year. I believe the one on the site is several years old. It would be nice for example if you could either query a dahlia database(classification guide) and find flowers in the color and size and form that you desire. The person who set up the classification database on the website in 2008 did a good job at the time. You can query by color or size and a list appears. However, as I say it is a list from the 2008 classification book and there are many newer varieties not in the database. Assuming that 100 new varieties are introduced each year(a low guess) there are 400 missing varieties. And most people are looking for the newer varieties, not the older ones.
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
