Blooms with weak necks
My dahlias seen to thrive in the tropical summers of Northern Virginia. But...
Several of my two-dozen plants, Wheels from Swan comes to mind, are very fragile where the stem reaches the blossom. I can sometimes knock a blossom off by bumping the vase.
My plants get afternoon sun. Trees shade them in the AM. It has been a rainy summer in N.VA, but I see no sign of fungus.
Anyone else have glass-necks on their blossoms?
