    The earliest blooms on the plants I saw at Dahlia Hill were not fully double, as they should have been for an 'informal decorative' designation. This caused me to doubt the plant label. However, blooms that were produced later in the same season did conform to the official description. I mention this as an aid to gardeners who might wonder whether they were sold the correct tubers when they see the first blooms on their plants.
