Out of Curiosity...

I'm just wondering.....

I've looked at heaps and heaps of Dahlias this past year and season, and I've come to wonder...Is there a dahlia that resembles Sparticus....but white?

If there is...what is it called? I'd just HAVE to have it!

Please...anyone?

Evelyn Foster, Sterling Silver & Lady Liberty are all B sized formal dec. & could be considered looking similar to Spartacus. There's also a white Edna C out there somewhere but good luck finding it- I'm not too sure the owner has even introduced it yet- it' s sport of Edna C & pretty gorgeous.

Thank you very much. I'll be sure to be on the lookout for some of the beauties.

Lady Liberty is more along the lines I was looking for. I'm going to keep searching though! I was hoping to find one of the same (or very similar stature) as Sparticus though.

I shant give up though!

There is one called Walter Hardisty
it is very like Spartacus, but in pure white, don´t know if you can get it in US, but in Europe, it is wellknown.

I live in Canada, and it so happens that the people that I ordered my tubers from this spring, happens to have Walter Hardisty! It's really pretty!!! My husband will love it also (cause it's a biggen ;)He's a fan of the Dinner plates :)

Thanks a bunch!
