Lots of blooms on a very sturdy plant that next year I will give more room to grow. Looks fabulous in a vase and works with a lot of other dahlias for a nice bouquet.
One of my favorites of 2017
Wendy Bedrosian (Wellesley Hills, MA) 4/19/2018 9:15 AM
I planted 37 different dahlias last year. This was one of my favorites. Not the long Best base life, but perf ct size and color. I managed to kill my tubers, so getting another.
Fabulous hot pink
Lynne Hillegas (Cuyahoga Falls, OH) 8/19/2017 11:31 AM
This is a beautiful flower, on nice sturdy stems. My Helen Richmond is so much more vibrant than in the picture. It's one of my favorites.
Lynne Hillegas (Cuyahoga Falls, OH) 10/9/2016 1:00 PM
My Helen Richmond looks exactly like the picture. No need to guess if you're going to get the real deal.
My Favorite Pink!
Naomi Morrison (VAshon, WA) 9/30/2014 7:39 AM
It comes on early for such a big flower, the color it fabulous (and non fading) and it is a good seller at my market stall.
