    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!
Gurt (Bethlehem, PA) 9/21/2014 8:06 PM
Spectacular, striking flower that lasts at least 7 days in the vase. Didn't act like late bloomer this year.
Pamela Lackie (Olympia, WA) 8/10/2014 2:57 PM
This flower is the most gorgeous of all the dahlias I've planted in my perennial garden. It's unbelievably showy and huge and lasts a very long time as a cut flower. The stems are sturdy and thick and it has become my all-time favorite.
Picture doesn't do it justice!!
Evelyn Rauscher (New Haven, CT) 8/25/2013 6:12 PM
This is the second year I have grown this dahlia and I must say that it is magnificent!! The flowers are HUGE and the contrasting color under the petal makes it the most unique dahlia I have ever grown. All of my friends want a piece of the tuber so they can grow their own because they have never seen anything like it before. I would highly recommend this dahlia. Its stem is 2-3" wide and flowers are held erect on strong stems that are long enough to put in a tall vase. Each flower I have cut lasts at least 10 days and the earwigs don't seem to like Nick Sr. Another plus!
Fabulous bloomer!
Kevin Bryant (Somerville, MA) 9/16/2012 9:38 AM
This one was simply amazing! My friends can't believe that this flower is real! This one is my absolute favorite of the dahlias I got this year!
A crowd pleaser

I planted this gorgeous behemoth in my front yard and had people stop me to talk about it. The vibrant red with the showy gold obverse is a stunning combination. I can't say stunning enough.
