What is 'Big Red''s real name?
This dahlia grows quite tall, 5-6', it has dark stems, and comes on a bit late then blooms until frost takes it down. The blooms are probablly "A" size, possibly "B". The green whatchamacallits on the back of each petal are quite noticible from the back view of the flower.
It was purchased in About 1998-2002 from Costco by a friend who shared it with me. She lost the name of it long before she shared the tubers. I would love to give it back its rightful name!
