I saw it over the last weekend located in Sunken Gardens in Lincoln.
Beautiful dark burgundy foliage, and these gorgeous yellow blooms. Blooms are about 2.5 inches across.
Help! I am in love with them!

THANK YOU!

SINCE I GOT YOUR EMAIL I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND A PLACE TO PURCHASE THIS DAHLIA (LIKE I SAID, I AM IN LOVE WITH IT!)

I AM NOT BEING SUCCESSFUL...DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE I COULD PURCHASE IT?
