Unkown Seed Parent Pod #1
Although I do not know the seed parent, I do know that all of these seedlings came out of the same seed pod. It is interesting to see the diversity out of a single pod.
Seedlings planted in 2021: 9
I wish I did know the seed parent as several offspring did have desirable qualities.
This seedling has wondeful colour and decent form. Certainly will consider growing it again in 2022.
A reasonable bloom but I am in not in love with the patchy colour.
A lot of desirable qualities. I have some concern that the center may be to loose, but will continue to monitor.
The open center on this one rules it a non-starter for me. It will be discarded.
This is about as bad as a seedling can get. It has been removed from the garden to prevent it from spreading it's pollen to future generations.
This is the type of bloom where non-dahlia people come in to the garden and fall in love with it. This dahlia will be removed to prevent spreading pollen.
