I found Little Scottie to be ignored by bees, whereas many of my other Dahlias were popular with bees. Tuber production was admirable, but stability of color unreliable. Many flowers had splashes of red instead of being a solid creamy tone. When spent blossoms shattered, it was rather messy, and hanging over the slate walkway as they did it made for frequent sweeping up. I had success untangling root masses to make multiple plants from the first one. It is a dramatic pompon shape but I favor other, more open, blossoms for the benefit of pollinators..

Lively yellow, a whole lotta blooms on strong stems, great for cutting.
First year growing it, so I cannot comment on tuber production.
