No Dahlias in Houston, eh?

They say you can't grow dahlias in Houston - too hot, too humid. We'll, this California gardener needs a dose of dynamic color. I received a couple of Tahiti Sunrise tubers as a freebie from my big Crazy Love tuber order, and they're both off to the races with blooms forming and, well, blooming! I'm anxious to see the Kogana Fubuki most of all. That's what got me hooked!
