I'm A Hottie
Photo by John Hibbs

I’m A Hottie was first introduced to dahlia lovers in 2006. The plant grows to 5-6’ tall and is so thick and sturdy it barely needs staking. Stems are long and very strong, and the flower stands upright making her excellent in large bouquets. Her form is described as Informal Decorative, and the blooms measure up to 8” across.

Most of my favorite dahlia blossoms have colors that variegate, blend and are hard to pin down. I’m A Hottie glows from within long, gently turning petals streaked with pinks and fuchsia.

She was very happy with the sun last week and will bloom solidly for at least two more weeks.

This and other blooms are available at the Ridgecrest Pub on NE 165th at 5th NE, for a donation to the Senior Center. New bouquets every Tuesday and Friday.
