What type of Dahlietta is this?

Postby Black Dahlia » Jun 24, 2012 2:10 am

I bought this plant a week ago, the sign just said Dahlia and since this is my first time buying one (though they are one of my favorite flowers) I figured it was a regular Dahlia. So I went about searching the internet for pictures to compare and try to figure out what Dahlia it was. I learned that it is a Dahlietta but I'm still not positive which one. I think it may be either Lizzy or Lauren. Though the pictures I've found of Lauren and the information tells me it's Dark Burgundy and mine is more of a Dark Pink. If anyone knows anything about them please let me know. Thanks!

It would be hard to identify the name of your Dahlia because there are so many cultivars...you might have a seed-grown dahlia rather than a tuber-grown one. I've grown the "Figaro" series of dwarf dahlias, and they looked similar to yours.
