We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
I know that Swan Island sells a lot of Diva and I believe Nick said was one of his bestsellers a few years ago. Purple is such a hard color to breed and I bet it was one of Nick Sr's last seedlings before he died. Nick Sr loved breeding oddball dahlias too and they were not thought to be very commercial. Junk Yard Dog proved you could sell just about anything. Platinum Blond was one of his and there was great reluctance to sell it. It was out on the cover of their catalog and sold out very quickly.
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
