Planted last spring a few clearance bulbs/tubers of Dahlia 'Snow Country' (a Dinnerplate Dahlia). Forgot about it until I saw this plant about 3 ft high with gigantic gorgeous white longlasting blooms in my yard! The bloom had to be at least 6" wide & so heavy that the plant needs to be staked with maybe a tomato cage or something else. You will not be dissappointed it you get this and they are very easy to grow too.
