Better than the pictures
Jeff Riemenschneider (Greeley, CO) 10/8/2019 2:16 PM
When I saw this picture I thought it was a great combination of colors. I ordered 10 plants in my very first order as an experiment. Bashful was my favorite. The actual colors are better than the pictures.

This flower had the most blooms of all the dahlia's I planted last year. It looks nice in a vase, but did not have very long stems. I will have to learn what to do to make sure I get longer stems...
Just Keeps On Blooming
Rick Jacobson (Oregon City, OR) 8/17/2016 12:38 PM
This is a very prolific bloomer! And, it seems to be a real favorite with the bees which is great for my nearby vegetable garden, too.
very prolific bloomer!
Erica Sherlock (Saint Helens, OR) 7/30/2016 11:34 PM
This tuber did so well in my yard this year. It continuously produced new blooms on long stems. I put it near my front door and it's so cheerful to come home and see those vibrant colors against my white house. I even like to use the yellow centers in bouquets after the petals fall off.
Lots of Flowers
Kerstin H. (Independence, MO) 9/11/2015 9:16 PM
This was my first year planting flowers from Swan Island. When I first opened the package, I was quite disappointed by the tiny tuber sections that were in the box. Did not expect any to grow, but to my surprise, despite being dug up by dogs a few times and being over watered by the huge amount of rain we had in our area this year, every single one of your dahlias pieces grew, and grew better than tuber-sections that were considerably bigger from other companies. Bashful has been blooming non-stop for weeks. Have been able to cut lots of flowers. It says 2.5 feet in the description, but mine are at least 4 ft tall. Very happy and will add a few more dahlias from you for next spring.
