My Absolute Favorite
Christina (MAPLE VALLEY, WA) 9/19/2019 1:46 PM
Mytle's Folly is my absolute favorite dahlia - so much color and texture in it's smaller size. Is stunning both in the garden and in a vase. Stems have been surprisingly strong despite the plants smaller stature. I have 5 of these in my garden already and will definitely be adding more!
Absolute stunner!
Joan Stevens (Los Angeles, CA) 8/24/2017 2:31 PM
I put one of these blossoms into a bouquet and people rave about my flower arranging and gardening skills. These blooms entrance people. They are luxurious and come hither and just gorgeous. The plant is new this year and not very floriferous (so far maybe four blooms) but I'm hoping I'll get more next year - I know these big flowers take more to produce. I think with something as showy and spectacular as this I'm willing to put up with not as many flowers since each one is a marvel. (but I did knock off one star - keep in mind it's my first year growing dinner plate dahlias so maybe they are all like this?)
Takes your breath away!

Astonishing combination of colors on a big strong plant...dazzling! Plenty of blooms in it's first year, and you'll want to bring them in as cut flowers because they are just mesmerizingly beautiful!
5 blooms
Aaron Brown (Bellevue, WA) 2/12/2015 7:22 PM
The look and color is 5 plus stars. It is amazing looking. Lowered to 4 because I only got 5 blooms in the 2014 season. In hopes for more blooms in 2015
Best Dahlia I have ever seen.
Wendy Burleson (Brighton, MI) 8/21/2014 7:57 PM
First off I'm in zone 5 and I'm the worst gardener on earth. I plant at the wrong time, have clay for soil, forget to water and fertilize and still Swan Island Dahia's always managed to bloom. But THIS one... I kind of forgot about it. The bud was tight and dark magenta (like a small closed fist) so I thought it was going to be a burgundy colored flower. Then I walked around the corner today and was knocked off my feet by the beauty of this flower. I have never seen anything like it. The bloom is yellow on one side and hot pink on the other but the petals twist and where they become thin the colors merge into a peach color. The photo on this site does not do it justice. Seriously - I would have expected to see flowers like this only in heaven. I ran in the house and cut the thing down and it was full of bugs. Black aphids and some other creepy crawlys but did not appear to be bothered. I soaped the existing buds and will check this flower daily to watch its show.
