|My dahlias are starting to come on... initial blooms are good, but I think next months blooms will be better:)|
Some of my mums are blooming, but I think next month will be better as well.

|I got Purplicious in trade last year, it seemed a pretty normal plant in terms of height etc. This year I planted 3 of them, they are all quite short (under 3ft.) and very bushy.|
How is it growing for you?

|Mine is bushy and ~4 feet. Will probably grow taller.|

|For me it bloomed early and kept going all season. It is shorter than most of the dahlias around it, and I think I need to place it differently next year. My only complaint is the stems are short, so it hasnt been a great cutting flower for me. Really nice purple though!|
