Otto's Thrill Dahlia AA Decorative 36"- 48" H
Otto's thrill~~hmm, turned out to be, one of my thrills also. First blooms this 09' year.
Zone 7a - First bloom 10-October-2009
Zone 7a - Plant is 4' 3" tall with multi-branches loaded with buds. Bloom is 7" diameter and not yet fully open - So glad I switched from 1/2" Bamboo to hefty tomato stakes.
