Very happy with this dahlia. Growing it for 3 yrs. Very nice cut flower with many blooms covering my front yard. Its very vigorous. It ate my roses. So plan to give it more room and divide every yr to manage the size. Give many tubers away.

Absolutely loved this flower. It is classified as a waterlily, but has the petals curve back quite a bit for that type. Very full looking with nice lavender tips and yellow center.
