(actually, might be a bonus, as long as it is not down-facing). What is the shelf life like? Does the bloom shatter as it ages or do the back petals hang on when the bloom is past it's peak? Looks like a potentially excellent cut flower!

It's either forward facing or has the converted 45* bloom angle. The stems are fantastic. Has a firm blossom attachment. I'm testing vase life and bloom shattering now. So far no shattering! The petals don't fold all the way back but I've never had a florist complain about that. This will move forward as a "cut flower" dahlia introduction.
This week I'll harvest everything off these 10 plants and see how it responds with production from here on out.
