  • "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!

Bees Love It!
Natalie Hartmann (Huntington, NY) 6/8/2020 5:36 PM
I don't think I was ever able to pick a single stem without having to wait for a bee to leave the bloom alone! Such fun! I was so sad because something ate through all of the tubers except for one, but happy to report it's growing again this season!Only gave it four stars because it didn't give me tons of blooms, but it gave a decent amount!
Such a little beauty
Stephanie Marsh (Paintsville, KY) 8/26/2018 2:27 PM
I love this sweet collarette. The color and form are fabulous and it just glows, both in the garden and in the vase. I love the collarettes, but Dad's Favorite is in my top 3 favorites.
Fun Flower

I'm liking Dad's Favorite even more than expected. It's popping out lavender flowers with a darker pin-cushion center. Bees like it.
