Wish I could tell ya how to get one! I never knew doubles could happen, much less triples. This is only my second summer growing dahlias.

How luvly!

It's wonderful! It didn't turn out to be a contorted mess and looks like dahlia triplets.

(Pony) Lakewood, WA(Zone 8a)

That's what I thought would happen, Pirl- the contorted mess, that is. I'm very pleasantly surprised!

Nature never ceases to amaze me. :)

(Arlene) Southold, NY(Zone 7a)

It looks more like a work of art to me.

Nature is grand, especially the first bite of a sun ripened tomato on a hot day.

Well, we had some rainy days, and my triplets became quite bedraggled and are all shriveled up and faded now. I didn't take any more photos, I figure they deserve to die with dignity. hehe.

Thanks all, for sharing the fun with me! :)

(Arlene) Southold, NY(Zone 7a)

It was great fun. Thank you for sharing it with us.
