beautiful flowers
Janet Dibbs (Henrico, VA) 9/6/2017 5:52 PM
The flowers are much prettier than pictured. However my plant required significant staking. Not only did the main stalk need a stake, the side shoots started to break, so I had to stake them too. If you don't mind the extra work, the beauty of the flower makes it worthwhile.
Mine look nothing like the picture!
Wendy Bedrosian (Wellesley Hills, MA) 9/2/2017 7:54 AM
The flowers on this dahlia were very different. It bloomed pretty late (late august, but I start mine in pots in April before I plant in the ground in New England)). The first one to bloom had very saturated colors, like an intense sunset. The second one to bloom had colors that were literally the reverse of the first! The first was very dark pink orange, tipped with yellow and the second was a yellow with pink orange tips! Crazy. Pretty when it bloomed, but was very late
great color
Ismael Mazzoni (Brairwood, NY) 8/2/2014 3:44 PM
