This classic dinner-plate dahlia isn’t just big
— 8 to 10 inches across when well grown — it’s ruggedly handsome, with an ivory center opening into masses of rippling white petals. You might think of it as the muscular, New Jersey-born, football-playing cousin of ‘Prinzessin Irene von Preussen’
. Dinner-plates, the most iconic of dahlias, were hugely popular from the 1920s through the 1950s. Semi-cactus/informal dec., 6-10”, 5-6’, from Oregon. This was one of our “last chance” dahlias in spring 2013, and we’re not planning to offer it again. Sorry!
