  • That's fine Hortico and I respect the fact that you are scientifically blessed., but I am not.  Perhaps some Forum members may enjoy the challenge or at least recognize a particular flower similar to a plant that they are growing. I realize not everyone would want to participate -  but for me who has limited knowledge of plant names it is interesting to be able to put a name to these Dahlias, some of the Forum members are very knowledgeable and willing to share this gift with others like myself.
