You always end up making run of the mill temperate plants look so exotic! Well, I guess that isn't technically a temperate plant... and it is an exotic looking cultivar... well you know what I mean! Great work!

Stunning -- so beautiful. I love dahlias.

Love these colors - if a flower could be described as "enigmatic", then that is what the dahlia is.

I like the contrast of the white tips to the dark purple, and the radial shape of the Dahlia.
