From Noni:

This is one I picked out of Corralitos Gardens Catalog 2 years ago. It was listed as a good cut flower and it certainly has been! It is prolific, the flowers are 5" have good strong stems and good substance. My customers love it! It is a BB ID and where as CG gardens lists it as 4' tall mine are more like 36-40". The little pink tip is a stand out ! I had one bush go solid color and it was also a beautiful orange for arranging. The orange is actually 2-tone, with a darker streak through the middle that on most terminates in a pink tip. This one produced very well through the season and is still producing nice flowers even through the wind and rain we are having. It would be an excellent one to go in a decorative border. It has nice healthy foliage.

These look almost pastel in these photos but they are not. The photos dimmed in the bright sunlight. The orange is quite lively but pumpkin-y at all.

I like bi-colored dahlias almost as much as I like variegated dahlias. I may have to try this one.

I have 4 plants so hope they made good tubers. Glad to share if they did.

The one that lost its light tip, I will plant again too. Its quite nice as a two tone orange cut flower..darker down the middle of the petals, lighter on each side. Then we will see whether its offspring have the pink tip or not.
