Slow to start, but it picked up in pace pretty quickly. I purchased this from Jan's Country Gardens. The first few blooms were not very impressive, nor did they resemble the photo on her website. But, as the season progressed, subsequent blooms were just like her photos and super-pretty. The blooms weren't miniature, either. Mine were between 4-6". They do tend to cluster, so if one wants to cut them for arrangements, diligent dis-budding would be in order. It is an unusually warm October this year, and most of my dahlias have begun to wane. Fuzzy Wuzzy is still going strong, though.
