I haven't grown dahlias in years, but this year I bought
some Oriental Lilies, and a tiny, really tiny dahlia tuber
was among the lily bulbs. I didn't think this little tuber
would do anything, but planted it anyway in a pot, with no
fertilize or anything else except water.

The plant is about 4 feet tall, and the bloom is 7 inches,
and I love this flower.

First bloom

Second bloom

Third bloom, now that the nights are cool, the petals tend to roll up,
and it has the appearance of a spiked ball for the bloom is quite round.

Thanks so much Dan, that does look like it.
The pot is not very big either. Two gallon or less. I didn't expect such a large plant, but
the plant doesn't seem to mind it's close quarters.
