A Week of Flowers, Day Seven: Dahlias at Their Best

For the final day of this meme, hosted by Cathy of Words and Herbs, I am remembering dahlias at their peak at the end of September, after rallying following the earlier extreme heat.

    This is a lovely photo Cathy. I didn’t realize you grew so many different dahlias. They look wonderful all together! What is the red one towards the back? Thanks for joining in Cathy. 😃🤗

  2. What a lush display! And so upright!! Were these supported, Cathy?

    • Cathy says:

      Well, they each have a grow-through support but these are only useful in the early stages and I am very lax with staking later in the season and tend to get broken stems – must try harder!!

    What a dramatic display they make clustered together like that, Cathy! The variation in their foliage color is also a nice touch.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Kris – I have a few dark leaved ones so I try to spread them out amongst the others. There are 6 in both of the beds and the sweet peas would be in the same beds on supports at the right hand side of them

    So glad that the Dahlias came back to give you a good display.

    Mine are in their pots in the lean-to greenhouse and I am just hoping they come back next year. Such fuss free rewarding plants to grow.
