In bloom today

Dahlia tenuicaulis is in bloom.

An odd (and wonderful) plant, blooming in a climate that's frost-free this winter, strange for Northern California.

I bought the plant at Annie's Annuals. It's growing in a pot, and has not been moved this (past) winter.

This is not current, but shows a larger plant of Dahlia tenuicaulis in bloom at Strybing Arboretum (SF Botanical Garden). 25 miles North of me.
