Dahlia ID please

I saw these beauties and wondered what they were called.
I'd love to get some dahlias - only ever had some in a pot that was stolen from our front steps, a couple of years back...
thanks all.

    Looks like one of the Bishop series.  I have a similar one that was seed-raised from "Bishop's Children" mix.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
  • Thank you.
    After looking through 41 pages of the national dahlia collection and going a little squint, I wasn't sure if it was Dreamy Eyes, or something else!
  • Yep...a reverse Google image search brings up Happy Single First Love as the variety.

    Go for it,treat yourself, now is the time to buy and plant new tubers. Sarah Raven has some beauties, so many to choose from. I have bought many from her, they are always quality tubers. 😉
