How to get the best color out of dahlias?
I'm popping over from the Plumeria forum to find out how to get the best color out of my dahlias.
For plumeria, we want HEAT and humidity to have darker blooms, but my dahlias are not responding similarly. I have a few "Hawaii" tubers that, rather than having the swirls of pink and orange, are yellow with white tips once fully open, though buds have tinges of pink.
They came from a very reputable nursery, so I'm not concerned I got the wrong variety. Any particular fertilizer? All the dahlias I've grown in the past have had great color... just not this one.
