Favorite Purple Bulbs--TOW

Hi All,

I visited the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens this August when the 
Dahlias were in bloom and took a lot of pictures. They were really 
beautiful and had a lot of admirers (as did the tuberous Begonias). I 
wasn't sure whether or not to add them to the wiki since there are Dahlia 
pictures on so many web pages and there must be thousands of cultivars. I 
wasn't sure when there were tags whether they corresponded with the plants 
behind them so most of the ones I saw I was not sure of the names. I've 
added a few pictures of some that we might try to identify by color (shades 
between blue and red that we might call ?). I also added one called 
Ballerina just because it was so pretty. It's not even faintly purple.


I invite people who look at them to tell us what color you think some of 
them are.

I have a dictionary that describes purple as a dark blend of red and blue, 
but for the purpose of our discussion of favorites I think it can include 
lighter blends of red and blue since I doubt we will discuss this 
combination again.
