Understandably Popular
Brian How (Edinboro, PA) 12/1/2019 10:36 PM
This dahlia is worth every care you can lavish on it. When well nourished and watered the plants grow tall with long cutting stems. The plants must be staked as they are lax growers and will flop everywhere if left unattended. Do not be put off by the plain cream color of the blooms as they open. They blush elegantly after the second day. Altogether an outstanding performer.
Weak Stems
Natalie Hartmann (Huntington, NY) 12/1/2019 7:09 PM
I'm wondering if I was unlucky with my Chilson's Pride tuber. My stems were really weak and bendy. It was also the only of my fifteen varieties to get powdery mildew all over it halfway through the season. I had three good flowers from this tuber. The rest of the flowers were half the size, white, and small. They would also come out half-formed like a half of a flower. I was convinced that I had been sent the wrong variety until those three blooms popped up in the middle of the season that looked similar to the picture. From everything I've read, Chilson's Pride is supposed to be a designers dream! One day I'll try this one again.
Joanne Murphy (Cold Spring, NY) 9/2/2019 6:12 AM
Chilson's Pride is a reliable and beautiful bloomer, starting fairly early and never stopping.
Denise Isaacson (Cincinnati, OH) 9/1/2018 6:54 PM
I love this dahlia! Great bloomer. Great cut flower!

The only reason four stars - my first years growing these very pretty flowers - their stems are moderate for cut flowers. Some long stems can be found with 'hunting' but not common. If they had long stems - I'd give five stars!
