Talking about Dahlia 'Sunshine', lauribob wrote:

This is one of my favorite dahlias. It's not one of the giant types, so it doesn't need staking and does fine in a moderately windy location. It blooms prolifically if deadheaded regularly. The dark foliage is really striking against the yellow flowers and does well both in containers, and as a bedding plant. I feed these with diluted liquid fertilizer in containers. They just get what everyone else gets out in the flower beds - a spring topdressing of manure or compost. I rarely remember to lift them in the fall so I pretty much think of them as annuals in my zone 5 garden.

The first bloom was a disappointment and I regretted getting this plant. But then every bloom after that was just perfect and it became one of my favorites. Lots of blooms.

Very few blooms on this dahlia. From the site where I purchased it, and after seeing the photo of a big plant with many, many blooms, I thought it would be spectacular. Disappointing, but I'll still give it another try in 2016.

Talking about Dahlia 'Rip City', jmorth wrote:

Rip City is an Informal Decorative Dahlia, size classified in the 4 to 6 inch range (BB). The color presentation can be deceptive, sometimes it appeared near-black, other times a reddish-black. Plant grew to about four and a half or five feet tall. My plant wasn't overzealous in bloom production. Overwinter storage required digging the tuber up, drying it out up side down, and then putting it into a neutral medium in the basement till the following spring.
