You bet. I found Mystic Dreamer (magenta-white blend) and was absolutely taken 
by it, later found Mystic Illusioon (yellow).

Great plants. BUT: they need a lot of water! In a pot they will wilt if not 
watered regularly.

I think they may chase the "Bishop" dahlias off the market, given that the 
Mystic series have foliage that's close to black, not just "dark".

Great minds think alike, and they plant the same dahlias too!
