We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
Who has not said something disparaging about a dahlia variety that some that else loves? I try not to make such remarks when I am judging at a show. I am much more likely to speak my mind among good friends but one has to be aware of being overheard. In the parlance of "dahlia manners" the old saying of "if you cannot say anything good, say nothing at all" . In dahlia publications, if they write something about a new dahlia, they only speak good words. No words or few words about a new variety is an indication that the writer is not very impressed. AC Shitake(only one "i" in the name) looks pretty good to me and I may try it if I spot it at a club sale or auction. Many of the newer AC varieties are sold at the Spring Federation meeting by Ken Greenway. He donates the proceeds to the Federation. The best bargains are the "used" pot tubers that he sells. They have already provided him enough cuttings and have lots of cutting material left in them.
Too many flowers, not enough time!
