Irish Ruffles Dahlia Tuber
I think this might be my favorite white. Have I said that already? But I really think this is the one. Firstly, she's EARLY. Like the first white blooming in the field, early. We love that. Secondly the full, ruffly petals are so packed into the four inch flower heads, I've never seen a center. Late in the season she'll get a really sweet, subtle blush to the centers, which is so pretty, even as the flower still reads as white in arrangements.
The stems are very long, very strong, and the plants are quite tall. I have noticed a tendency for the stems to crack in strong winds, so I'd recommend support despite the robust vitality of the plants.
Several years in a row these have been the preferred tubers for the gophers in our field, so there's that--if you're interested in eating dahlia tubers, this might be a tasty choice!
