Winner J van Ruiten, 1996

Melody Dora is a freely branching plant with nice, vibrant coloured flowers in yellow and red-orange.
In 1998 it was rewarded as the best dahlia at the KAVB Trial garden.
It was send in by J. van Ruiten who named the dahlia after his mother: Moeder Door.
As it fits excellent to the Melody-series we bought the variety in 1999 with the condition that the name would be maintained.
Melody Dora is perfect as a border plant and can very well be grown as a tub plant in somewhat larger containers.
