Chiltern Seeds say:"For the lovers of bright, garish, vulgar, striking, clash-with-everything, gaudy, OTT colours (and we all do secretly but never admit it!), this is your Dahlia. With impressive rich dark bronze foliage, it bears large, spectacular single flowers in, as you will have gathered, a delightful mix of rich colours. A brilliant cut flower. And, as with all Dahlias, any you particularly like, you can save the tubers for the following year."

Nina says - A fantastic Dahlia!
