This is a beautiful dahlia. If anyone is interested in trading tubers, I have peaches and cream 3-4 " flower diameter, yellow dinnerplate, deep red white tipped 4" , pink spatter with deep pink 3".
Sorry the names escape me.

Our first year with Pooh. This rainy summer it has shot up to more than seven feet tall and has been blooming very steadily, a few blossoms at a time, since late July. Plant is quite strong. We'll see how it performs if we have our usual hot, drought-ridden Atlanta summer next year. But I have high hopes. Wonderful, cheery blooms.

With these wonderful cheery color the bloom doesn't stay long on the plant because people want to plug it. Its in a public area so what can you do. So I am not sure if this one put out a lot of bloom or not because no one can keep their hands off it. Its a fancy shape and looks not real doesn't it?

Its name makes me smile. Our dog, a little Westie, is called Pooh. He makes us smile everyday. So this Dahlia seems to me more cheerful than any other Dahlia. I've added it in my garden in 2008. In spite of a very rainy and cold season it has performed very well. I'm not disappointed at all. Lots of bright cheerful flowers on long sturdy stems, a nice sturdy habit and ditto tubers.
