I received this as Color Spectacle. I am new to Dalihas but even I think it is mis-named ( but I do like it!). Huge 5 ft plant, about 7-8" flowers. Your help is appreciated!

I can't even guess at a name but it's a great color. Contact the company and send photos; ask them to replace in spring and they will. Let's hope they send the correct one!

Thanks pirl but I think I picked it up at Lowe's or got it in a trade ( did not keep a record *Blush* )

Then all you can do is enjoy it and I'm sure you will.

One year I got this one in a Home Depot "mix" and never did identify it and it didn't hold over winter. Wish I could find it again.

There are thousands of dahlias out there, and its so hard to id most of them from a picture. If you bought it at a big box store it is probably from holland - a lot of those seem to be mis-named.

It looks a bit like Barbara B, but I don't think that is what it is.

Hmmmm,

Doing an Internet search and looking at other pictures this may actually be color spectacle just not showing white tips. Regardless it is staying!
