Dahlia from seed.

An eye-popping red kept over from last year. 'Plant World' seeds. They've been very good.

Pretty, pretty, pretty Ange, and nows the time for the vivids to bloom!

Glad you like it, Janey. I think there's some 'coccinea' in the forebears in this one. All the plants from these seeds have been stunners this year, but all variations on red or deep pink. I have a small 'splashed-orange-beige' coming through. I think that will be an unusual plant for next year, if I manage to keep it going.

Interesting to grow on Ange... I'd like pinks for next year. I have Bishop of Llandaffs just coming into bloom and some peachy oranges with no names..

Lovely and bright, Ange. A good strong red.

Love that red. It definitely wants to be noticed.

I have a similar one in colour,that I kept from last year,which is just coming into flower,and I love the zingy red too,Anget..Mine was from a pack of three tubers,from a cheap supermarket last year ,sadly ,the other two didn't make it through the winter,but price wise ,not too bothered :o)

Well, the seed didn't break the bank either, Bloomer, but you do have to be patient (which I'm not very often)...
