Couldn't resist - beautiful Caribbean Fantasy
I have been waiting 3 years for one of my absolute favorites to grow. First they were sold out of it, then I found there were different Carib. Fantasy's on the web (how does that happen anyway?) so I had to email a vendor to make sure this was the exact one they were sending, then it didn't do very well last year. FINALLY it has bloomed!
I don't know exactly why I love it so much (I am not into white flowers actually) but I do love yellow/white dahlias but I think the added red stripes makes this one so unique. Like so many bi-colors, it actually will bloom differently from bloom to bloom.
