Those are so lovely. I don't think I could pick a favorite, they are all so pretty in their own way. Right now my dahlia bed is just about right for the number of varieties I have -- after I share away the extra tubers that grew last year. I am not sure I would want the work of having more, but the urge for "one of everything is a good start" runs rampant when I see all those I don't have. Sigh!

I know how you feel Lynn...... Someone asked me one time if I'd be just as happy with 50-60 Dahlias........and I said "NO"....are you kidding?.....I'll be planting about 120 varieties this year and about 3,000 plants. This is a White version of "Kelvin Floodlight"...called "Kelvin White".

Those are all beautiful Rusty.
Do you grow Mystic Haze?
Mystic Haze is another dark foliage variety with single blooms...kind of an Apricot colored bloom. I don't have it....wish I did....the only other dark foliage variety that I have is "Fascination"....a lavender/pink colored bloom. If you have MH..I'd love to see some photos.....Thanks, Rusty

How did I miss this thread? I just went through "liking" all the pictures! So gorgeous. I lurk on BYH and fell in love with Rusty's sheep too!
