Looks like a fastigiated blue bayou. I grew it once myself.

I think we all have different taste in what we enjoy in a flower. The company that I bought this from has been selling it for a number of years so there must be others who share my bad taste in flowers or they would have discontinued it. nodding Smiling

Wow Cantillon, you are just full of piss and vinegar. Seems you are new around here. We are a civilized bunch here, if you can't be nice find some place else to play!

Thanks jv, I have spent part of today mopping up some of my comments from t'other day.

They weren't all unhelpful, and perhaps a little harsh on the dahlia folk, of which I am one myself.

I trust you find todays comments much more reflective of the tone of the site.

Yes, it's lovely!
