    I just have a couple more of these...I think they will all be the same color..not sure...we'll see in a few days...I am thinking that I might do a dahlia garden next summer...i do love them...my husband has built me a screen box that I can put the tubers back in to store for winter in the basement...We can't leave the tubers in the ground or they will rot over the winter.

    NO these arn't dinner plate. I am not sure what they are. Next summer I might do dinner plates, but they need some place to call their own.
