Perhaps there is a play on the name as the originator is named Littlejohn and that was Robin Hood's pal. I just bet that Robin Hood did not grow dahlias or shoot arrows through ball dahlias placed on top of Littlejohn's head.

The day Robin Hood bloomed was the same day the final tubers were planted in the garden. It took a long time to coax some of them to start this year, including HH Clowning Around.
