  • "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! I live in humid Georgia and all but the biggest bloomed plants are prolifically producing gorgeous flowers. I'm new to dahlias but they couldn't be easier or more rewarding. Thanks so much--"

My favorite dahlia of the year
Mary Schroeder (Olympia, WA) 10/12/2019 1:22 AM
I grew 40 varieties and this was my favorite by far: Gorgeous color, prolific, and awesome vase-life.
Joan Stevens (Los Angeles, CA) 8/24/2017 2:18 PM
This lovely dahlia probably produces more flowers than all the other dahlias in my collection combined (and it's a substantial collection!). I wish the stems were more sturdy for the vase but if I'm not too sentimental about cutting off another bud I can get decent length. The flowers are gorgeous - sadly, it seems like they are more attractive to ants than some of the others too. The variation in shading on the blooms as they age makes a bouquet of them quite spectacular.
Intense Colors

If you like the picture of this dahlia, you will love it in person. The colors are bold and unique. I am adding this one to my keeper list.
Amazing, Unusual Colors
Melissa Jeswald (South Hamilton, MA) 6/21/2015 4:12 PM
This photo doesn't do the mixed colors justice. I won a "Dave's Garden" photo contest with a picture of "Rawhide" and it's floating out there on the 'net if you Google "dahlia Rawhide". Lots of blooms in a manageable size, not prone to pests as other dahlias are. I have been growing it every year since I started in 2006, and it is a "must have" for me.
Beautiful colors, odd name
Anne Furman (Upstate New York) 10/14/2014 5:08 PM
Tall, strong stems, early blooming plant, didn't stake this year. Flowers last a long time as a cut flower.
