EEEKK!! and the Bones Brothers

plantlady2(NW Washington)November 2, 2006

EEEKK!! is the name of this dahlia that will be introduced in 2007. I did up an arrangement for the Fraser Valley Dahlia Society show in Canada in Sept., titled it "EEEKK!! & the Bones Brothers" & entered it in the People's Choice catagory. It won. EEEKK!! has won every year for 4 years in the People's Choice catagory which just goes to show that people like the weird, wonderful & funky & you don't have to be a show dahlia to win awards!

This is the arrangement at home before the treck north.

The Bones Brothers kind of moved themselves around on the way but were still groovin' when we got to the show!

I agree! What a great spooky presentation and truly spidery splits on EEEK. Very fun!

Actually, those aren't splits on EEEKK!! He's not a lacinated dahlia- just one weird & twisted cactus with petals that corkscrew & show their white insides.
