What's your favourite Dahlia?

The beauty in the dahlia field is just amazing.  It is my job this month to decide who gets planted next year and who doesn't make the cut.  This year there has been an enormous amount of insect damage and some varieties are more susceptible than others.  These are the first to go.  Then what new colors do I love and what ones are just so so.  There are a few so so ones, but  also some new stunners.

So what's your favourite colors.  The bright orange, red and yellow ?  The more calming pink and purples?  or maybe the smoky fuchsia and pinky corals?

Don't forget Dahlia season goes right to Thanksgiving.  These beauties are available in Garden bouquets, by the bunch or by the bucket.  Bucket orders are available only by pre-order.



This big purple beauty is Thomas Edison.  This variety is a little late to start blooming but such a lovely color.  This picture does not do it justice.  It is the only dark purple dahlia I have found.
