  • "I wanted to tell you how wonderfully your dahlias are performing in my garden, despite the fact that they have had less than perfect conditions!

This is a winner
Marge Arnold (Wappingers Falls, NY) 11/25/2017 5:23 AM
This was new for me this year. I absolutely love waterlily type dahlias and it did not disappoint me. It had tons of flowers and bloomed the whole summer.
A survivor
Lee Miller (Stockton, CA) 10/30/2016 4:33 PM
Just as it started to bloom in June, a gopher got to the tuber and I had to cut the foliage back to the ground to see if there was enough tuber left to survive. Yeah, it made it to produce some very bright delightful yellow flowers late in October.
A favorite

We loved this at our house. Strong and pretty.
Needs Lots of Deadheading, Beautiful, Prolific
Evelyn Hanlin (Battle Ground, WA) 12/14/2013 10:01 AM
This was my first year growing "Ahoy Matey". It grew to a surprisingly large size the first season. The flowers were great for cutting! I used them in many arrangements and was very happy with the color. The flowers seemed to rot quicker than others and were more sensitive to rain damage, but if I kept up with cutting off the damaged flowers I was kept well in supply. It produced tons of blooms!
Favorite Yellow

This is my favorite yellow, but it has not produced as many as I'd hoped.
