This stunning clear bright white which seems to be more weatherproof than most so could be a good option for those growing for showing without covers. A 2011 introduction from Clearview Dahlias in the USA which has a good depth to the blooms and a neat form. When growing for showing we would suggest growing 6 up and removing the first 4-5 pairs of buds below the main bud to maximise flower size. For garden showing just let it flower and remove maybe just the first pair of buds. Height 1.2m. Good for exhibition and garden.
