Gorgeous flower, 7" booms on a 48" bush. Stems could be sturdier to hold up the large flowers.

The first year I had this dahlia the bloom color changed a lot, but always in the pink tones. Now that I have seen it bloom in its second year it is a must have for me. This year it was stunning and an eye catcher among my couple of dozen dahlias blooming in beautiful yellows and oranges producing an apricot to peach effect. Aside from an apricot color that would compliment endless combinations of plantings, it was a prolific multiplier with almost all the tubers producing eyes. I highly recommend this one!!
