Mission Gypsy Dahlia Tuber
Mission Gypsy! This is one that my camera has a hard time seeing, so there are some selfies in there to help the colors balance correctly--my camera knows not to make my face hot pink, but it doesn't always know not to make the flowers hot pink.
Mission Gypsy is a little two inch mini formal decorative bloom with the most wonderful combination of raspberry, rose, mauve, and caramel coloring. All these photos get close, but she's a gem in person. I love her!
She makes plenty of great flowers for cutting, with long, slender stems. This is my favorite size bloom to arrange with as they don't overwhelm a bouquet and this particular variety blends so well with other colors. Such a beauty!
