Late to the party: dahlia Aloha?

dahlia "Aloha"

Okay so here's a weird one. Just when my dahlias seemed to be slowing down a bit, out pops this yellow-pink cactus variety from the same plant, that back in August, gave me this burgundy dinnerplate bloom.

Spartacus dinnerplate dahlia?

The dahlia latecomer is on a stem that grows side-by-side to the burgundy one. The resemblance to Aloha in the image below (right) is close, but the coloring makes me think that I've still got something else other than the Aloha. So wish I could identify this!

L-R: Hawaii, Duet, Aloha


  1. wow funky! still it is so pretty:)

    1. I know, weird yeah? I got 3 large burgundy blooms from that plant and then surprise! The unexpected pink/yellow one decides to crash the party.
