Hi guys,

Fell in love with this dahlia yesterday at Walmart and it was fifty percent off so... :0) Anyway the tag on it was generic, so was hoping someone could help me with an id. The flowers are 2" and some are mostly white, and some are mostly dark pink. There's some yellow in the petals as well. Tia!

There is definitely more than one kind in that pot. They are very attractive, but I am unable to help with names.

I guess that makes sense, but was hoping it was just one plant. Glare But whatever two I've got the colors go well together. - I had some dahlias years ago and managed to keep them alive for about 3 years, just started looking at them again, and what beautiful plants!! - May have to add another one or two for variety. Lovey dubby

How tall are they? I am assuming that if you bought them potted and blooming that they are dwarf plants, not full sized dahlias? I have been seeing more of those at the big box garden centers this year.

I don't grow the bedding dahlias so am not familiar with them. Pretty colors!

Mandolls - Nice pic. I've seen tree frogs in daylilies, but not in other flowers before. They're kind of cute little guys. Smiling

The tree frogs seem to love the dahlias. Though you would think they would try to camouflage better than picking a pink and white one.
