Identify this dahlia??

A friend is growing several plants of this dahlia, and she will be sharing tubers next year.

Unfortunately, she doesn't know the name of the cultivar. Does anyone recognize it? Thanks!

I'm wondering if it could be either:
Bert Pitt
Mistery Day

I was comparing the pics and its difficult to tell unless you can actually see the have a look at these names and see if they fit. The two names I mentioned are Informal Decrative dahlias.

Sierra ;-)

Sierra, after checking web photos, I'm pretty sure it's 'Mystery Day'. Thanks, so much, for your help!! Couldn't have found the name without you!!

I purchased this dahlia this past spring at a local box store, and it was marked as Mystery. It is a truly beautiful flower. I have a vase of them on my table right now.

Since I have them I agree it does look like Mystery Day. But because of the first photo and that if it might be more reddish in color, could it possibly be Contraste?

The red in the photo might be due to the light. When I saw the flowers, I was struck by how purple they were, so I'm pretty confident that they're 'Mystery Day'. Thanks for all your help!!
