Not only is Melissa M prolific ‘above’ ground with massive deep pink/purple luscious blooms – Melissa M produces MASSIVE – VIBRANT tubers! Totally amazing! I did not count (but I’ll hopefully think of counting next season). I have shared MANY – I still have roughly 15 to be planted or given to some happy gardener (I’ll plant at least 3!) Initially I purchased this as a person who was in our lives is named Melissa . . . hopefully there will be something blooming with the person in our future.
Super Prolific!
Marybeth Janerich (Salt Lake City, UT) 9/17/2017 4:24 PM
Started producing lovely flowers in early August - earliest I've ever had a dahlia. At any given time, there are between 20 and 30 flowers on the single plant - it simply won't stop producing! Yellow center is really eyecatching, contrasts so nicely with deep, rich pink petals.
My favorite
KATHRYN WELCH (Camarillo, CA) 5/30/2017 4:51 PM
This one is just as beautiful as the picture. Blooms early with nice long stems and last in the vase. The color almost looks neon. One of my favorites. Plant was about 6' last year, a little shorter this year.
Hot Purple

I bought this dahlia to represent a favorite family member with the same name and it has performed beautifully! Mine came out much more magenta-purple than pink.

Tall and blooms profusely.
