I second Islander's suggestion of Diva. It is a really vibrant purple, heavy bloomer, long lasting in a vase and great tuber producer. And they winter over nicely in basement. I have lost so many varieties over the years to winter storage, but Diva has made it through 7 winters and these tubers still look nicer than just about any of the other 50+varieties I tried storing this past winter. I included a photo. Diva is the tall purple in the back. The yellow/lavendar in the front are Bo-Bay, another heavy & early bloomer. If you grow Bo-Bay be sure to keep cutting the blooms. If you don't cut them as soon as they start opening, the stems get short on later blooms. Diva has long stems regardless if I cut them or not. Thumb of 2020-04-17/Amy4Dahlias/a2f94d
