We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
Skipley Moonglow is one of those lighter yellows you like. For the shows, it does not completely reflex to the stem and that is a "sine quo non" for ball dahlias. If you use manicure scissors and remove the "involucres" the ray florets will reflex to the stem and one cagey exhibitor did this and won a big prize. The practice is allowed for pom dahlias and since balls are just big poms why not? Exhibitors can do a lot of things to blooms that are perfectly legal. Fanatics aren't they?
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
