The scoop on Dahlia Myrtle's Folly

"Frizzy" . . . makes one think of hair gone wild and that's generally not good. In this case, however, the snipped and frizzed petal tips on Myrtle's Folly are nothing short of wonderful. Starting as deep burgundy buds, these flowers open to reveal yellow hearts surounded by a fluffy mass of crimson curls and crinkles. The colors are an ideal bridge between ivory/yellows and wines/cranberries in summer and fall bouquets. Myrtle's Folly bloomed early in our trials and continued all season long. Big fun!
