We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
The "Giraffe" trait that is rarely seen are the horizontal bars of pigment on the back side of the florets. It has been transmitted to seedlings and Les Connell had a variety called Tahoma Giraffe. I believe that Roland Verrone has some with this trait too. Tahoma Giraffe was a fine flower and we grew it for several years before losing it(not a good tuber maker).

We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
