This really is a hard working beautiful dahlia. Always had lots of flowers. A bit shorter for me at 3'. Color variation in the flowers will come and go with some all yellow and some getting more of a peachy tint.

Neutral mystic On Aug 3, 2002, mystic from Ewing, KY (Zone 6a) wrote:

In warmer climates you may be able to leave the tubers in the ground with heavy mulch. But for me, in Zone 6, I have to dig the tubers before first frost . Clean and let dry well. Pack in dry peat and store in cool, dry place .
