Hello. I bought some dahlias on ebay. I don't find these names in the dahlia database.
The first was sold to me as Serrano - and it's a wonderful dahlia - very robust and puts
out many flowers:

The other was called Bristol. There are several in the database, without photos, that
have Bristol in their two-part name.
Here is Bristol - the blossom is fairly small - about 2 to 3 inches:

I wish I knew more about them. Anyone recognize them?

I love dahlias too! The trouble is they are what plantspeople call "promiscuous". They love to cross pollinate and you end up getting seedlings of all sorts that "sort of look like" the parent plants. You might have 2 of these unnamed beauties. Keep searching though...there's tons of named varieties out there.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
