This Dahlia is the only 'single' in my garden. I originally grew it from seed about 5 years ago. It's always the very last Dahlia to open for me, and very welcome coming to the end of Dahlia Season.

Great result Jacinta. Not everybody has patience of that nature.

That is very similar to one I bought a few years ago as a "bedding plant" that has come through several winters and just flowers its socks off every year! Just noticed it has a whole new flush of flowers today! I really love the colour and you I like the single flowers best!

I grew some from seed I bought in Lidl a couple of years ago and they are thriving. And still come back each year with big string tubers!!  The singles are very pretty.

The single dahlias are growing on me too, might just try them from seed next year.  Yours is a beautiful colour Jacinta.
