Dahlias growing 'wild'

Here are some pictures of Dahlia "berger's record" from a week before Christmas of last year. I let these dahlias grow au naturale so they sprawled underneath the mandarin tree and looked great growing 'wild' (i.e. unstaked)

Click on the pics to see a larger version. Also, can anyone ID the large white Dahlia?

And after the heavy flowering, i cut it back to just three main stems and it bloomed again!

At first I thought it might have been Iceberg, AAID 12"x3' bush. But looking closer, I think its Snowbound, AID 9"x4' bush.

Iceberg has lavender tips, whereas Snowbound is completely white.

Thanks sturgeonguy. I think your Id might be correct. I will write that name down and keep it for reference. I like knowing specific names for different cultivars just for reference in the future.

Triple_b, that red one is "Berger's Record". Im sure some nursery carries it. I bought it from a street side vendor in San Francisco's Mission District. He had TONS of different colored Dahlias, cymbidium orchids and palms. I also got this Cymbidium orchid from him for $10.
