C DG, I have a Cambridge and a Bilbao for you to have back if they make it through the winter OK.I have been saving them especially for you. Bilbao was a bloom machine last year! It is a short one, but very nice. I think I will have a fair amount of these shorter big flowered ones this year so will try to put them together where they are not getting shaded out by the monster tall ones. I would love good Akita and Vancouver plants but not sure I will go seeking them...It seems like they have good years and bad years and I have bought so many new tubers already, but if anyone has extras I think I might have a Bilbao for trade. I think Cambridge only gave me enough to share with C DG.

Fabulous Picture! All my photos looked pinker and were taken from farther away so the colors looked more blended People just grab them so quick at the market when I put out a good picture of this one. I'll be starting quite a few from cuttings . I think Candy type names sell quicker Big Grin

And here is another picture to illustrate the conundrum of variegates:

Colwood Scheri, with the bloom from her sister plant next to her who has decided to revert to solid raspberry.

I love them, but they're just not reliable here!

When you grow variegated flowers, you notice that they sport quite a bit to totally different and sometimes only somewhat different colors. The most common sport is the flower going solid. HH RPT is the solid red sport of HH Pink Tigress. Last night at the dahlia meeting one of the club members brought in about a dozen flowers of HH Warlock and half were solid red and the other half the normal yellow with the red spots. He loves the red sport of Warlock and in fact all of his stock stayed red and he had to get some variegated stock back from me. I am marking the solid red sport plants of HH Funhouse and I like the red sport better than Funhouse as it is a very nice shade of red and the flower is 8-9 inches in diameter. HH Bewitched has sported to a white background with lavender spots. I like it a lot but Margaret less so as she has always had a love affair with HH Bewitched and now we have excellent stock of it again. Of course, Bewitched has sported to a solid dark red and one vendor named it and is selling it.
Here is a picture of a sport of HH Pink Tigress that is a nice flower if you like lighter colors. I am marking this sport and it looks like it is pretty consistent and needs a name.

This flower of Pink Tigress was on the next plant over from the sport.

Margaret loves this seedling from 2017. I wish she had told me last year as we would have grown more of it.
Thumb of 2019-10-22/teddahlia/9a439f
It is BB sized. Margaret and I differ a bit on whether to call it a Wl, an FD or an ID. None of those categories fits it well. I said lets call it "decorative".

Hollyhill Funhouse sported to red but when I planted the tubers marked red, they mostly came up variegated. Hopefully, the one that is red will be red next year. No Red Funhouse sales this year. Picture shows all the dots and splotches that came from the variegated flower that we used in the beginning of our breeding called Rolf. Other lines of variegated have larger dots. It is interesting to know that the person who identified the variegated gene got a Nobel prize for HER work.

Not enough pictures of variegated flowers in this thread. We love this 2018 seedling and anticipate growing lots of it next year. It is a seedling of HH Serenity which means this seedling has 25% of it's genes from Pam Howden as Serenity has 50%. It could be more as the bee selected the anonymous pollen parent, probably from something nearby and my best guess would be HH Pink Tigress that has 25% Pam Howden genes also. So in that case it would have a few more PH genes but not all that many more.

For many years, Mingus Toni was Phil Mingus' best seller. It is known for making an enormous number of easy to divide tubers. Hollyhill Toni is a seedling of it and although we no longer grow it, it is still seen occasionally in the shows. It grows much taller than it's parent and at Christy Park's garden was well over 8 feet tall(partial shade).
