Dahlias aren't really a regular hunting ground for me. Sure there are some experts here. However, Why not check out one or two. My favourites though are Honka, a simple single star shaped yellow, Twyings After Eight an almost black foliaged white single flowerer, Clair de lune another single creamy yellow, and the Bishop of Llandaff.
I grow several in pots and in the ground. For pots, for summer display, you dont need expensive ones. I grow in pots prob 40 to 60 cm across and deep.
