Wow. I think it's called Come to Poochella's Garden.
What a wonderfully dramatic color combo and gorgeous bloom! If I find a real name, or possiblity, I'll post; but meanwhile, back to oohing and ahhing.

Good guess Al, that's close and a pretty flower, but it doesn't start with C! Peachguy, that is a stunning couple of blooms. I'll look for others as able, but big Al might be onto something.

Anyone else have any ideas for Peachguy?

Are you sure it started with C? It looks a lot like Swan's Glory to me...but how big is your beautiful flower? Hard to identify without knowing!

I am fairly sure it started with a C, the size is either class B or A but I will check tom. when it is light out. I bought it at the nursery I work at so it was produced by a wholesaler that supplies many garden centres in Ontario. I was quite skeptical that it would turn out as the picture but it did. Man I wish I would have kept the packaging.

Look up "Swan's Glory at Swan Island Dahlias and see what you think.

Well I measured it and the flowers are about 6 inches, which is the same as swans glory. Mine just doesn't seem as orange as the picture swan island dahlias has, to me mine looks much more red. I think it could be swans glory, and i am mistaken about the name or it was sold under a different name in Canada.

Finally found out the name, I looking at the companies website that supplies the nursery where i got the bulbs. Then I found it, its name is Caballero, at least that is what it is called in Canada
