This speckled beauty is a variegated form of ‘Juanita’
, one of the 20th century’s most popular dahlias. It’s just as strong growing and floriferous as ‘Juanita’, but its flowers are a lively lavender-pink — aka “radiant orchid,” the 2014 Color of the Year — delicately streaked and stippled with burgundy. Discovered by a backyard dahlia grower in tiny Brighton, Illinois, it went on to become a record-setting award-winner. Cactus, 6”, 4-5’, heat-tolerant
, from Holland. Last offered in 2014. ‘Nita’ has gone commercially extinct in the Netherlands, but we hope to offer it again someday.
