Having fun is part of the reason many of us garden - exploring new varieties, testing innovative combinations, determining if a particularly desirable plant will thrive in our area. Giraffe is a dahlia that cries out to be grown just for the fun of it, with flashy coloring and an exuberant form. This brilliant dahlia is a hard to find heirloom, as well suited to old style gardens as to new, cutting edge ones. Complex and cool. Pricing is for a trio of Giraffes.
