A favorite of mine, and one that actually seems to enjoy our lousy weather this summer!
Oh boy that is nice.
That's a beauty! It almost looks like it's made of twisted fabric in multiple colors. I love it.
Very pretty!! Love the color!
How is your weather this summer? The weather in Utah has been VERY hot almost the entire summer which has been hard on the dalias.
Our weather has been cooler than usual, and wet, too. Just not great weather for most of my plants. The dahlias should have been in full bloom weeks ago, and instead it's a pitiful bloom here and there, and many of the newer ones, not started in the house in the spring, will not bloom before frost. And they don't even look large enough to have made a new tuber. What has bloomed, the slugs have destroyed. Most of the leaves on the 2 I posted yesterday are destroyed, but the plants are so tall that the slugs didn't make it to the blossoms...yet.
I feel your pain. The tubers I planted in the pots out side got decimated by slugs. The ones I started in the house did way better. I was able to spray enough to keep the slugs from hurting established plants. They ate the new shots right to the grown and they never recovered.
