Hello there,
before I send off an order for just some more Dahlias, I would like to hear your opinions about them

I was looking for following:
good cutflowers (just for my own fun) so, probably tall plants
not fussy, vigorous
medium to good tuber maker (my Taratahi Ruby would be "medium", having 3-5 fingers that are worth storing in fall)

I noticed that some Swan Island cultivars are recommended as cut flowers, even though the plants are described as 3feet only. So I tried to avoid those and meant to pick plants that are at least 4 or better 4 1/2.

Flower size: I rather prefer BB or even M, but I noticed that my flowers tend to be smallish anyway, compared to catalogue description, I guess, there is still potential regarding feeding and watering...
