My grandfather John Gaylord from SF named a Dahlia after his wife, Frieda. Does anyone know how to find the seeds to this Dahlia? He died in 1968 and had sent seeds all over the US and foreign countries, also had a Dahlia plot next to the conservatory in GGPark.
Thank You!

It seems very doubtful yet I wish you the best of luck finding them.

I assume the plot in Gold Gate Park is long gone?? That is too bad. I would have made a 'midnight requisition' on it to acquire seeds, if not an outright tuber. Bad robot!!!

Do you know what it looked like? I assume you have googled. I found this one. Maybe a renamed plant??
