Brown spots on buds

Perhaps someone with more experience can help answer this question. I have a Mystery Day in a large pot on my deck. As the buds form, they develop a small brown spot on them that gets larger as the bud grows. They do bloom, but the flowers don't open all of the way. What do you think this could be from?

RE: Brown spots on buds

oliver75 - I don't have any answer for you, as I, too, am a complete novice with dahlias. But I have some brown on a bud now and then, as well as some leaves getting brown (quite a bit). I'm replying to your post because I can see that nobody has come forth with any help for you. I thought I'd mention the forum called "Pests and Diseases" on the general list of the garden forums. I posted a question there and got a couple of good answers, so you might give that a try.
