These are some of the dahlias we are enjoying this year. I’m building up a collection of purples.
I have many plants of this pink one so I will be giving away a bunch of these tubers. They are good bloomers, the plants are really large and need really good support. Parts of mine are breaking off at this point in the season.
This orange ball is an amazing bloomer with long straight stems for each bloom. I hope to get a bunch of good tubers from the plant.
This one is red, but not an apple red. It’s kind of tricky in a bouquet, but it does sort of go with pink and fuchsia zinnias.
I actually have some new tubers that haven’t even bloomed yet! I’m hoping I get at least one or two flowers, so I can at least see what they look like. The dahlias planted out in flower beds have also had very few blooms – I don’t know why. Dahlias are addictive – there are so many beautiful varieties, providing plenty of flowers for bouquets.
