Yes, but if the growers and sellers used them, and the charts were on display on the ADS website with a disclaimer about colours looking different on different screens, you could compare the colours of Dahlias for sale with those of Dahlias you are familiar with - you could figure out that it Dahlia A (for sale) was a bit darker and a bit redder than Dahlia B (in your garden already), because their listed colours were both on vendors information, for exapmple. I think with Dahlias, vendors would need to list a range of colours, because they change a bit through the season, but it would still be helpful.
