    Richard P., Cincinnati, OH
  • "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!

Tons of Flowers
Marge Arnold (Wappingers Falls, NY) 12/27/2018 11:18 AM
I've grown this for a couple of years and it gets more and more tubers I can dig up each year. I had a row of 10 plants this summer and had more than 100 flowers. The color is true to the picture and it gets comments from everyone who sees it.
Worth the wait
Jennifer VanWagner (Clinton Township, MI) 10/23/2016 6:20 AM
I completely forgot I bought this dahlia. It bloomed very late for me. But it is worth the wait. Wonderful intriguing color. It is true it isn't the most prolific bloomer I've had. But its uniqueness more than made up for that. Plus it is a shorter variety and that makes it more versatile for me.
6 blooms
Aaron Brown (Bellevue, WA) 2/12/2015 7:17 PM
The color was exactly what was pictured, so no issue there. I only got 6 blooms for the 2014 season, so I was a little disappointed. In hopes for more in 2015.
Love Intensity
Victoria Wall (WEST CHESTER, OH) 11/15/2014 9:16 PM
Prolific - rather long stems, great cut flower - adds drama to bouquets with the intense color, I highly recommend 'lights out'!
Best Black Yet
Bill Killpatrick (Lafayette, NJ) 11/12/2014 3:10 PM
Lights Out has incredible color saturation that is somehow different than all the other black dahlias. This, combined with Jason Matthew, Midnight Dancer, Ivanetti, Voodoo and other "black" dahlias makes an incredible bouquet. Or add some white for a great high-contrast arrangement. Love this plant.
