The plant is not as pale as this picture shows. Possibly the hardiest of the species Dahlias. I grew a lot from seed recently, so at the moment I have it all round the garden. So far they all look very uniform, but I am hoping to be able to select the hardiest and most floriferous.

Here's a thing you don't see very often, Dahlia in the snow. The winter came very early and very suddenly this year. When I took this picture I had assumed that this was just a sudden unseasonal flurry of snow and everything would be fine for another month or two, but the first week in December froze solid and we didn't thaw for three weeks. It finished off a lot of plants, but Dahlia merckii at least survived - most of the species were killed outright.
