Hazel, you could wait and see exactly what you have flower wise but if you really hate the foliage then yank it out. .
prob there are one or two dahlia experts out there that can advise as to what you have
dahlia tubers are not really expensive so select exactly what you want....named varieties will be readily available in the autumn online or in the garden centres. you can select flower colour, foliage colour, type of flower, tall or dwarf. You get exactly what you want
not one for "bargain" packs...often they are pretty ordinary or even poor quality. far better to buy quality rather than quantity if possible
