This dahlia has been grown by a gardening family for 50 years.
It is a semicactus type, blooms are 7-9 inches across in a salmon-pink with yellow undertones/streaks.
It growns 4-7 ft in height; this one at our cottage is 7' in our short-season Zone 3b.
I would really appreciate knowing the name of this beauty...thanks for your help.

There are very few Dahlias that have been around for 50 years. The breeders keep coming up with new ones, and the old ones often get dropped.

I am afraid I dont have a clue as to the ID, I have only been growing dahlias for 8-10 years, so am not familiar with the older varieties. There are thousands of them.

How about talking to Swan Island or one of the other major growers. They might know and are very good about trying to help with ID
