Has anyone grown Bee Hapy and/or Japanese Bishop Dahlia

dcrosby(5MA)April 16, 2013


I'm trying to design my garden space. I'm thinking of growing with the Bee Happy and Japanese Bishop. The Bee Happy in the picture (Swan Island) looks fuchsia but other pictures on the web make it look washed out. Does anyone have any experience with these Dahlias...growth habit, color, height, width

Thanks so much!

I grew Bee Happy last summer. It is beautiful.Not washed out at all. Just a nice rose pink.Unfortunately it didn't make new tuber.I planted what I dug up in a pot & am anxiously waiting.
I ordered another "Happy" one this year from a different source.The tuber of this is a lot different.More like other dahlias I've seen.The Bee Happy was a little thing,about the size of 2 fingers.

Hi 17rose

Not to be picky but...would you call Bee Happy more of a rose color or a fushia?
