$60 is expensive. ADS is generally reasonable with prices; so I'm not sure why the price is so high for that.

I have used the color guide in a round about sort of way. The ADS handbook has color numbers next to some of the entries. For example - Formby Kaitlyn is a P26. So if I know that Formby Katilyn is the type of purple I'm trying to get - I can just look for others with P26 (like Hilltop Ivan). It looks like the color gets darker as the number increases. So a dahlia like Hollyhill purely purple (P29) or "Jessie G" is the answer?

The real issue is that dahlias do vary according to temps, sunlight and other factors. So then one needs to find a dahlia that looks like the color you want in all the photos online......

Can't wait until I can stop looking at online photos and go outside to see a purple dahlia!!
