Dahlia Bargain

The local hardware barn had a table of Mystic dahlias marked down. If I'd been travelling by car I might have been tempted to buy more than one.
This one had the loveliest flowers, but had no tag. I'm not sure exactly which one it is. Another orangey one on the table had a Mystic Haze tag, but looked a little different. Whichever one it is, it is beautiful!


  1. Is it maybe Enchantment, but then more fully blown than in your catalogue photo? What's in a name anyway, it's beautiful.

  2. Lovely flower, the Mystic dahlia; hadn't heard of them before--unfortunately, the last time I planted ANY flowers (except marigolds) the deer had them for dinner!! Aaargh--We live in a former forest area and the deer are everywhere...pretty creatures, but evidently hungry...hugs, Julierose
