He looks even better today - the other bud has opened and the yellow stamens in the other two are showing up more.

Is there lots of dark folliage with this , Nariz ? I think that I have several and didn't know the name .

Yes, Driad - lovely bronze feathery foliage.

Heavens to Betsy, this is a gorgeous flower!!!! Did you grow it from a seed packet? This would be quite exotic where I live. I'm confident I won't find this in a seed packet but I will be looking it up! My garden could use a splash of this! (Or two!)

No Omani, the tuber was sent to me by another very kind GoYer. Not sure how you would grow it from seed - it would probably take several years to develop a tuber before it would flower.

I grow dahlias from seed every year , they seem to be very willing .
I'll readily supply seeds to try , troops .

Wow! Didn't know they gew so quickly from seed! I shall have to try that myself to increase my supply of 'The Bish.'
