Ok, we need to be frank about this. I didn't like the white tips on this dahlia, so when one of the plants went all orange, that's what I went with. Probably should re-name it. Open to suggestions. In the meantime, this is an AMAZING dusty orange with whispers of magenta, huge size, and sturdy stems/plant. I'd be happier if the stems were longer, but I still love this guy. 8-10 inch flowers on a 3 foot plant.
