The dahlia on the bottom is from that 6'+ potted dahlia, kind of a yellow with streaks of orange.
You could also call this my pretty Valentine.

Can't wait to see what you are hatching up there! I do have cactus dahlias - I believe you saw them on the island in pink. Never saw the white ones, sound lovely, I'll have to look for one.

Oh thank you! I do like the cactus ones :) I wish the Bishops Children came with cactus flowers. And I seem to have forgotten my idea, I just remember that it was pretty good!

And to get the sense of the height - had my son take this photo. The vase is on the fireplace hearth, about a foot high. The arrangement is about 5 feet tall. I wish I had a bigger yard - I would plant a huge patch of the L. philippinense. They produce a ton of seeds, but I have not transplanted the seedlings properly to increase the patch.
