Dahlias

There are so many different kinds of dahlias.  Who would think these flowers would be the same genus

as this one!

    1. Interesting…… where do you live? I have trouble growing flowers too. Dahlias are the only ones that seem to grow for me, with the exception of the small Black Eyed Susan plant I bought this year.

      1. Part of my yard is heavy clay too so I understand. Actually the front was heavy clay in parts too but taking out the grass plus years of mixing the clit with compost and still later adding a brick wall so I could adding 6-12 more inches of compost has transformed it. Your mentioning this reminds me of back when adult men had great difficulty getting a shovel into it.

        I’ve lived here since 1973 and have no plans to move! 🙂
