**We have a beautiful deep purple dahlia that I bought my husband 
from Old Garden Nursery.
I can't get a decent picture of it. How I see it, is not how my 
camera sees it. I just looked it up and it is Thomas Edison (1939). 
It is much more purple than shown on the Wiki.
Even the photo from Old Garden Nursery doesn't show the depth of color.

I have Ballerina, or one close to it, and it is beautiful (tho' not 
purple, as Mary Sue said), and I have the small purple and white 
bicolor that Mary Sue has on the wiki (We have many of the ones 
pictured).  http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/…

I also bought, when we moved up here last year, a dark winey purple 
Dierama, the most beautiful one I have ever seen, really dark, really 
The dogs ate it.
I save a few corms and replanted them, but it'll take them awhile to 
adjust and flower again.
