striking speckle pattern on petal. Strong stem that holds bloom. Put out a good amount of flowers. Healthy foliage.
After many yrs of good blooms the tuber suddenly become genetically unstable. A few flowers have solids coming up resulting in a creepy half speckles. The dahlia expert told me he got one at home blooming all solids and loosing all speckles. Hopefully mine only have a few bad ones.
