Having been around my garden admiring my dahlias I realised that not one of the 17 odd varieties seems to have a perfume.  Are there any fragant varieties?

Hello MuddyFork,

There is some breeding of scented dahlias going on. I've come across 'Hy Scent' and 'Honka'. It's definitely more common for them not to be fragranced. It would be interesting to hear from anyone who is growing a fragranced one.

It would be 'the icing on the cake' if not only do they look fantastic but also smelt wonderful

They do look a little sparse, thanks for the link

But don't you find that dahlias smell of 'dahlia' ?  I love that smell - it reminds me of warm and mellow autumn days.
