    Howard H., Groveland MA

    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!

This is a beautiful flower! The center keeps opening up and the leaves start to curl to give that fire effect. Very tall < 6 feet in my yard, requires staking on all stalks. This is a showpiece.
Most stunning performer
Robert Brigham (Portland, OR) 7/17/2016 9:10 PM
We've grown this three years in a row now. Ours gets almost 9' tall (we have the photos to prove it) on a thick stem. Flowers are magnificent and are significantly larger than a man's head. It does love heat and sun, more so than other dahlias. Extremely impressive variety.
Fire made flower!
Lindsey Bailey (Beaverton, OR) 10/10/2015 11:09 PM
This one's a showy addition to my garden with good stems for cutting and real striking, active looking petals that curve and turn all over the place! Later bloomer and 4th, 5th, 6th-ish flowers on the plant will be smaller than the first 2 or 3 but they last an incredibly long time!Takes great pictures for the FaceBook banner!
Great flower
Arlene Shuford (Winter haven, FL) 7/29/2015 1:49 PM
Love this one
WOW! A Great Performer
David Andrick (Ellsworth, NE) 11/12/2014 9:03 AM
What a show! There was a two week period when it had a group of four 10" flowers open in perfect form. They just lasted and lasted. Amazing dahlia!
