Anyone recognise this Lidl dahlia?
It was meant to be Colour Spectacle (bright orange with white tips) but is clearly not! Flowers are big, 20cm/8” across, plant 120cm/4ft tall. Here it is in various stages from bud opening to fading bloom:
Mountainous Northern Catalunya, Spain. Hot summers, cold winters.
The size is the same. Mine looks a bit pinkier but that is par for the course in my heat. Even tho it wasn't as expected, it’s pretty impressive, so might try and get a few more for next year.
It could be a cross between several Dahlia's and as such be nameless.
Enjoy it ...it is a wonderful colour.
The Whitteman’s Best looks close enough, so will order some of those as new playmates.
