My dad gave me the tubers for this dahlia. It is at least 12 feet tall this year. And the brownish-orange flowers are about 8 inches across. This year I planted them in the perennial border next to my vegetable garden. They are blooming beautifully now. Probably 10 flowers on the plants blossoms today and many buds yet to open. Dahlias are great for the final garden show of the year.
