I sometimes find dahlias a bit 'samey' but this one's really different. Very nice.

I have this dahlia & it is gorgeous. Fluff, you should look at some of the very unusual Dahlias on the market today. I use to feel the same, but I was very excited by all the different types now.. Dahlias this time of the year is a blessing, inserted here & there to brighten things up, never mind lovely as cut flowers, after getting rid of the earwigs. Ugh!!!

Yes they do make good late summer colour don't they? I will have a look Doon...nothing ventured...!

What a stunner! I havent tried Dahlias yet, they are my dads favourite flower he has a few in his garden, he says earwigs are a nuisance on his. Is this particular one easy to get hold of?

Exactly Doon... Well said!!....I must admit i dont cut them for the house because of the ear-wigs.....I went out dead-heading the other day..took a bucket of bleach with me...The number of ear-wigs in the dead and almost dead heads was horrendous....Yukkkkkkkksssss....The collaretts are lovely Fluff (like the one above) and come in all sorts of colours......

Im sure it isn't that difficult to get TN/S...I bought it this year in our local 'flower shop'....because its new i havent yet been able to take cuttings or increase it...otherwise i could have sent you a bit of it.....
