My favorite thing about Blackberry Ripple was that I could make a whole bouquet from this one plant. One bloom might be speckled like shown in the picture. One might have a pie shape in the deep maroon color, another could be all maroon or half. It was just a fun flower to watch each bloom open up never knowing what the combination would be.
One thing I don't understand and maybe you can help me out here. The box says it is a Dinnerplate Dahlia. Mine was not. If this one is doesn't that make it a different Dahlia and wouldn't it have a different name? Although it does say 'New' on the bottom of the box. Can someone explain how this works in flowerville?
There was another Dahlia called Thomas Edison that I really liked the plum color of so I grabbed it too.
And of course I love Columbines so when I saw this package that said Giants I decided I'd best get it just to see what they would turn out like. Down at the bottom of the box it says that the deer resist them. Well the deer around my yard haven't resisted any Columbines yet so this should be interesting.
And last since they were 4/$10 I decided ya just can't have too many fragrant Oriental Lilies - another one that the deer love but I'll get them all sprayed so the deer will go away.
