The name of this Dahlia has made me smile. Living very close to the German border I'm a little familiar with German informal spoken language that differs of course from the formal spoken and written German language. Its grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary are considered simpler, sub-standard. 'Kleene' is such a informal word for the German formal word 'kleine' (transl. small or little). Of course we all know that Berlin is the capital city and one of sixteen states of Germany. So its name 'Berliner Kleene' simply means 'Berlins Small or Little Ones'.
