The Dahlia in the photo is seven inches across. It is very long lasting on the plant and in a vase but it needs staking. One of my first Dahlias, it has become one of my pastel favorites. It is growing on a South Wall. The foliage was subject to powdery mildew this fall (not unusual in our area) but responded well to a non-toxic product. I took this picture in late October. Edna C. blooms mid-summer for me.
