I keep forgetting to comment on this dahlia. It is an absolute staple in my garden. It sits on a hot, dry, south-facing wall. It is typically behind my vegetable garden, so it doesn't get deadheaded consistently. Even with little care, it is just gorgeous, and the color holds up beautifully to the hot sun. The flowers last about 5 days on the plant, but do well in vases (typically lasting a week). Even when started on a single tuber, it produces a profusion of flowers, and it is short enough (5') that I don't have to strain to cut them. The stems are strong, and the blooms aren't clustered, so it is easy to cut for bouquets.
