Today I found a Dahlia at Lowes I couldn't pass up...especially after I saw what the name was...Seattle! It's a dinnerplate yellow with white tipped flower that are 6-8" in diameter. The plant is 36" tall, takes full sun (which I have none of! But I'm going to try anyway!), package says it is deer resistant (not that I have a problem with them), good cut flowers, blooms all summer, and is hardy down to zone 8, but suitable for zones 4-8. I guess I will have to dig it up in the fall if I want it to come back next year. I should've shared one of the three bulbs I got with my neighbor so that I can at least see it bloom if mine doesn't! I may dig one back up later for her.
