Has anyone grown Peaches & Cream? This was a sub & labeled as such...
Looks nothing like what I've seen online for P&C.

At least three different spellings for three different dahlias.
Peaches N' Cream
Peaches and Cream
Peaches & Cream

All are different dahlias...

All I can tell you is that it is NOT Peaches N Cream. (Which happens to be one of my favorite cut flower dahlias. Your photo does not bring any particular dahlia to mind...

I also have Peaches N' Cream growing, but I bought that knowing the differences between the three... the other two varieties, in my opinion, are awful. Despite not knowing what this is, I'm just happy it's not the other two!

I have never been tempted by either of the other two either...When I first started growing Peaches N Cream I had no idea it was hard to propagate...I had so many I could have sold buckets just of it! Now that I know it is desirable I was lucky to get two tubers to sprout and not sure how they are doing in the garden...I should go looking for them tomorrow.

It reminds me of Margaret Duross a little...Thumb of 2017-07-11/Islander/db957c This came as a bonus...it was OK but seems pretty slow to grow this year. I think it is an oldie...

No reports on our Test Garden blooms yet. I have not been over there. I talked to Marilyn Walton this week and she said that only 3 were in bloom. The way things are popping in my garden this week it shouldn't be long now.

Thumb of 2017-07-11/vikingcraftsman/b8a7a4 Bloomquist Kevin G is pure eye candy to us dahlia growers. It should leave the viewer hungry for dahlias.

Crazy Legs and Amber Queen tied for first in my garden's first bloom contest. AQ has a green center currently (darn heat), so I'll share Crazy Legs instead. Thumb of 2017-07-12/melissamaeday/41a090

Miss Delilah (2), Raspberry Punch, Thomas Edison, Neon Splendor, and American Beauty. I only wish my photo could capture the deep, rich red of American Beauty!

Wow, look at those colors! You now, I never could grow a good American Beauty...year after year I ordered it from Swan Islands and got virused plants or open centered flowers. THe last one I tried was a free bonus on an order and it was both virused and open centered so I gave up. Maybe I just wasn't fated to grow this one. I am hoping my Evening Lady comes through with good dark red flowers....Then there is River's Rosebud if it will just get a move on!

Oh man... I wasn't expecting blooms already but Ms. Kennedy appears to be my first bloom for the season. I'm looking forward to seeing how orange this turns out.

Noni, once your TTG is in full bloom I hope you'll post pictures of this year's offerings. Ted and Linda I hope you'll do the same for Canby. It's where I make my wish list for next season!

Viking, I'm also growing Tahoma Vivian this year. No blooms yet. Jon and Sylvia, I'm so looking forward to seeing my AC JC bloom! One I didn't order was Big Mary (I thought about it but ordered Mary P. instead). Will be waiting to see your reports on that one. Choices, choices. . .

Finally was able to get Bloomquist Tory P, so am looking forward to seeing that one bloom. I did propagate a couple so I should have a few to share next year.

Em, I am hoping you have nice healthy Bl Tory P's. It seems to be a bit disease prone. I've had to toss 1 of mine and one of the 3 I got from Red Hawk but so far the other 2 are looking OK. And their blooms of course are wonderful!

My Tahoma Vivian is in bloom now too. She seems to be an early girl. My Big Mary is probably the biggest plant in my garden i.e. leaf size and spread but it will be a while until bloom time with it.

Our very own Noni's Calico Evening Glow!! What a surprise to spot this bloom across the field. Very vigorous plant, sending up broomstick stalks, and very deep blooms...even in the heat. Great job, Noni!!
