I looked at Linda's. She's got some really neat looking cultivars. How does Popcorn compare to Hollyhill Lemon Ice as far as bloom size and vase life (HH Lemon Ice is stellar, I notice, and I don't know much about stellar types)?

Lemon Ice is a large stellar at about 6 inches in diameter. I am going from memory of long ago and Popcorn is as I remember more of the cut flower size of about 4 inches in diameter. It is strange that Popcorn is one of those "regional" flowers that was popular here in the Portland area for years and yet no one else in the USA seems to have ever seen it. Helens Dahlias used to sell it. I need to take it's picture as there is none that I have seen on the internet.

Wow Harlequin has great color . Despite talk of England's Glory being a bit spotty and or temperamental I couldn't resist giving it a try ,

I thought we lost all of these tubers in storage and had just two very dubious looking ones at planting time , both plants are growing very nicely .
