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!

Lady Liberty(BFD) introduced in 2003 reminds me of spartacus in bloom form......and is white...

RE: Out of Curiosity...

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.

RE: Out of Curiosity...

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!


RE: Out of Curiosity...

There is one called Walter Hardisty
it is very like Spartacus, but in pure white, dont know if you can get it in US, but in Europe, it is wellknown. Hardisty_1.jpg

RE: Out of Curiosity...

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!

Any other requests are always welcome :D
