Went to my Hillcrest Kismet plant today and took a few more photos. Let me know if this looks closer to Hillcrest Kismet.
That looks exactly like my Hillcrest Kizmet...:-)
That is it, indeed, in all its glory. Very lovely bloom.
Did you post the laciniated one in those same colors, or was that someone else?
That was me who posted the laciniated one...here it is again.
Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Well done.
The first two are Hillcrest Kismet. The laciniated one looks like Coral Frills. If they were on the same plant you might have a sport that you can take cuttings from & propagate & try again next year.
Well if that is Coral Frills I'm really sad, because the one I got rotted :( I love those colors!
If I wind up taking cuttings from the sport, I'll save some for you ladies....
Fabulous, Dahliaboy! Whatever I can trade you, is yours.
