Slow to bloom but...
karen PARIS (Hummelstown, PA) 10/28/2019 9:14 PM
Once it bloomed I was very happy with the results. 4 inch flowers, not as prolific as I had hoped but it is very pretty and has good stems. Petered out after middle of October. Nice contrast to other colors.

This plant grew about 5-1/2 feet tall, despite being pinched early in the season. The flowers started opening the second week of August. The plant was very full and bore a good number of beautiful flowers, though they do peter out late in the season. Looks nice in the garden, and some of the stems would be pretty good for cutting.
Vigorous grower; survives abuse
Laura Y (San Diego, CA) 9/23/2017 1:26 AM
I got this variety in my May 2015 end of season sale order. I was a first time dahlia grower and my objective was to grow my dahlias out mainly for propagating additional stock in preparation for my August 2017 wedding. Well, all did not go to plan as there were house (and plant) moves and life craziness that resulted in my dahlias being moved and abused MANY times. Part of these adventures involved my first attempt at dividing tubers and taking cuttings. Of the 13 varieties I received, Gitt's Attention performed admirably in each trial. Its cuttings survived better than most. It's divisions tried to grow through the worst of conditions. Serious drought and Zone 10 heat on a giant south facing concrete patio killed almost all of my dahlias, but not all of my Gitt's Attention. I have finally stabilized their growing situation and the remaining plant is flourishing. The leaves are lush and reasonably pest and disease free in my location.
Got my Attention!

Amazingly beautiful flowers. Prolific and problem free. Couldn't be happier that I added this one to my garden.
