Dinnerplate dahlia problem
Hello, Can anyone give me advice on dinner plate dahlias? I have white ones that are really healthy looking and have tons of blooms. But once they open up, the blooms just bend down at the neck of the bloom. I have the plant staked, but it is the actual blooms that break bend down every time so the staking of the stem doesn't help. What do other people do about this problem? I love the blooms, but since they are always just bent down, it makes the garden look really messy. The only way to enjoy the blooms is to cut them off and put them in a bowl inside.
