Orange Globe Dahlia Tuber
Holy moly. This flower is incredible. Classed as an orange bloom, she's really more of a dusky bronze with a hint of mauve about the eye, and I'm obsessed. The blooms are larger, like in the 6-8 inch region. Similar to Hy Patti, but the flowers are a bit bigger, and incredibly full, the open for ages! A little more terracotta than Patti, too, she's got the prize for most beguiling bronze.
The plants are strong and tall. The cutting stems are perfect--maybe a little on the thicker-stem side, but still, totally reasonable for working with.
Just gorgeous. Like stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful.
