Peaches and Cream Dahlia

Ceresone and I both bought these this year. Mine finally bloomed and even though it didn't look like the picture exactly, I like it. I see from the internet it is variable in coloring for everyone. I was afraid W-M had done it again.

From September 2010

Pretty Glenda! How big are the blooms?
You hadn't posted for a few days and I was starting to worry about you.

RE: Peaches and Cream Dahlia

Pretty and nice to see something new in your garden this time of year.

RE: Peaches and Cream Dahlia

I have been around. Sometimes my blog takes a lot of time and there really hasn't been much new happening here except that wonderful rain.

The bloom isn't really big, maybe 4.5 or so inches. I just see two separate plants and I think there were 3 planted. So far, it is very upright and won't require much, if any, staking.

I hope it blooms next year with the Buff Beauty rose and the blue salvias around it.

RE: Peaches and Cream Dahlia

Glenda, mine rather burned up early, the blooms just fizzled out--but now, its over 4' tall, and loaded with blooms. It looke like there is many more than I planted.
Dahlias were the one thing I went overboard on this year, and Glads. The heat was murder, literally on lots of them--many will never recover--maybe one third are greening up, and trying to bloom. I tried to water at night--and it still burned leaves and all. Worse summer for heat and drought I can remember--and I WAS around in the 50's
