Ahh this is a very nice Dahlia! When you look at it, it appears to have backlighting. My picture is not very good at capturing the effects of the coloring but it is very unique and beautiful. Also stock is strong. We had heavy rains for quite a few days in a row and in comparison to some of my Dahlia's, this one did very well with staying upright. Planted Spring 2014, Bloomed 2014. Love this Dahlia!
