    Not sure but it is quite pretty. Love the way it is wrapped with the green contrasting leaves.

    Wow Jewell that's it!!! That's the flower!!! OMG thank you so much :heart:

    Ok so next question, if any of you know. And I'll be doing my own research too, but while I'm typing here I figured I'd ask.

    I want this to be my wedding flower, but I have no idea the growing conditions, when they bloom etc. I don't think I'm going to be able to get my hands on real dahlias in October am I? :(

    My Dahlia's do best in the fall when the weather cools down Ronni, so I think you should be able to find them in October.
