Barbarry Red Dwarf Seedlings

Barbarry Red Dwarf is an amazing dahlia but has a tendency toward poor storing tubers.  So if I got the exact same quality of bloom with better storing tubers, I would consider it a massive victory.

Average seeds per seed pod: 13

Germination Rate: 45%.   Seedling Survival Rate: 42%

First seed germinated on Day: 2.  Average germination at 10 days.  Last seed germinated on Day 26 of 28.

Seedlings planted in 2021: 18

Diminutive plant with thin steps. Nice bloom though.
