Gardeners' Notes:

This dahlia is slightly shorter than many others I have grown, and the first year I swamped it with taller, brighter flowers. The tubers came through the winter well, and I planted this dahlia in a different area, with no other dahlias. It is next to a Pretoria canna and a black calla lily, as well as a cucumber plant and a dappled willow. The flowers are magnificent this year. It has an understated elegance and mild color that are just perfect in this setting, and it seems a little earlier to bloom than some others I grow. Highly recommended.

A 2008 addition to my garden. This simple collarette dahlia is named after Debussy’s romantic nocturne.".. With a single row of soft yellow outer petals, a frilly ruff of white inner petals, and an eye like a harvest moon.." I think it will be a pretty collerette Dahlia to add to my Dahlia collection in my garden.
Raised by Maarse, Netherlands 1946.
