One of their recent article on dahlias kind of got my dander up...
they love Dahlia ‘Dazzling Magic’ for its "soft red petals"
That's it! There are no other qualities mentioned in the article to support the "love"
"To grow ‘Dazzling Magic’ dahlias, plant the tubers in the spring in sandy, well-drained soil. The plant is a bit delicate, so be prepared to stake them, especially the taller varieties."
This looks like a cut and paste. A singular plant is delicate, so be prepared to stake "them." Especially the taller varieties of "them."
The article also talks about dinnerplate dahlias, not sure why. ‘Dazzling Magic’ does not appear to be a dinnerplate dahlia.
Another quote. "The Decorative Dahlias group includes the Dinnerplates and other taller dahlia plants that reach up to four feet in height."
Actually, the decorative dahlia group specifies flower type, color and flower size. Dahlias are not classified by height.
In an article talking about a specific plant, I would think more useful info would be:
1. Is it a new introduction?
2. Who is the breeder?
3. What "group" is this dahlia in?
4. Attributes to justify a "love" rating.
To be honest, the article seems to have been written by someone who knows little about dahlias.
