The wholesale market (mostly wedding /event deigners) I sell to informed me last year that typically the dahlias that I had left over were the true purple and yellow varieties (HH Purely Purple, River's Purple Pinwheel). There is an increasing demand for deeper burgundy / purple. I am increasing production of Diva and Woodlands Miranda for this reason. Hollyhill Regal would be great for this too but I have not been able to find good stock.
