  • "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!

My favorite
My absolute favorite dahlia. So pretty in a vase.
consistent and beautiful
Joan Stevens (Los Angeles, CA) 2/28/2018 9:00 PM
I love this one! She churns out gorgeous flowers early to late. They last nicely in a vase and are pair well with many other colors.
Virginia Miller (Warne, NC) 11/3/2016 6:39 PM
This is just an exquisite flower. I never dreamed I would like it so much but the colors were so rich and vibrant. It was my first year to grow it. The plant was over 6 feet tall and it bloomed profusely.
A dahlia for dahlia lovers
Lee Miller (Stockton, CA) 10/30/2016 3:10 PM
This is a dahlia lover's dahlia. Nice stems, prolific bloomer with outstanding blend of colors. The picture doesn't quite capture all the shades of color. I have two plants and could plant more to have bouquets of just this flower. It is outstanding.
Didn't love it
Susan Q. (Peekskill, NY) 9/24/2016 9:03 AM
This one was just not for me. It was just OK, and the color faded quickly and it was not a very prolific bloomer for me.
vicki amsink (west olive, MI) 1/4/2016 2:03 PM
I planted this late, it sure made up for it with lots of blooms absolutely beautiful,great for cutting.
Super bloomer
Janet Baughman (Santa Rosa, CA) 8/30/2015 5:40 AM
Bahama Mama is a constant bloomer. It is a great cut flower with a good stem. Highly recommended.
Gorgeous – Prolific
Victoria Wall (WEST CHESTER, OH) 11/15/2014 8:24 PM
I have grown these for a couple of seasons- oh so addictive – beauty. Bahama Mama is a prolific bloomer, in Cincinnati area starts blooming mid-July with full sun.
Beautiful flowers!!!
Mary Ann Calamba (Fresno, CA) 6/19/2014 1:26 PM
I bought this last year and it was so beautiful, I can't stop staring at it. It has been blooming since the beginning of June 2014 for me and lots of flowers. A must have if you want cut flowers.
WOW! Perfect!
Dani (Linden, NJ) 10/26/2013 2:01 PM
This dahlia is PERFECT! The color is just like a sunset, (prominence of each color varies by flower), the plant overflows with flowers (needs a lot of support), and goes with nearly every other dahlia color. The plant was almost 8ft tall! The best part: the blooms last 9+ days in a vase!
Mesmerizing Color, Prolific Bloomer
Joy Walko (North Canton , OH) 9/10/2013 9:11 PM
My first year with this and it was stunning, so many blooms, great stems, but the color is what is so entrancing, I can stare at the blooms forever and continually see new nuances of color. The other reviewer who compared it to a sunset or sunrise is right on. These were beautiful in bridesmaids bouquets for my daughter's wedding and went perfectly with our sunset color scheme. Can't say enough about this one- outstanding!
This is my favorite dahlia!
Rosemary Goebel (Parma, OH) 6/2/2013 8:13 PM
This gorgeous dahlia is big, beautiful, prolific, and makes beautiful bouquets! It also makes lots of new, big tubers too.
Nice color
Margie Bayer (Auburn, WA) 7/13/2012 8:52 PM
I had this dahlia for only a year so I can't be TOO critical about it. Perhaps it might have done better the second year. However, during its first season the overall flower was smaller and the color wasn't as vibrant as the picture. Could have been the location and soil type. Everyone's green thumb produces different things. I may have to try it again in the future!
Morning sunrise
Dahlialover12 (Reading, PA) 4/20/2012 3:46 PM
This is the most beautiful colored dahlia! It has colors that look like an incredible morning sunrise or amazing sunset! Oranges, yellows, pinks, corals.. Great for cutting too!
