I have planted so many new flowers and I thought instead of putting them on the blog randomly, I would start FAVORITE FLOWER FRIDAY....
Today's flower is a Dahlia.
I discovered this when working at the greenhouse. I never had planted Dahlias. It is a new thing for me. The back of the tag says it provides a summer-long display of showy blooms atop strong stems. Perfect for containers on patios and decks as well as in the border. Makes an excellent cut flower (I did put mine right in the ground). Care: Plant in rich, well drained soil to slightly dry between thorough waterings. Apply fertilizer once every two weeks during growning season. FULL SUN.
Lift and store tubers in cold climates. BONUS... These can be lifted and planted the next year!!!
I THINK I HAVE A NEW LOVE IN FLOWER LAND, AND THE COLORS ARE BRILLIANT!
