I planted over 100 dahlias this spring. They are giving me a show.

The thought of spending probably the worst day of November, weather wise, digging, washing, labeling, turning upside down to dry for a few days, packaging, more labeling, storing, checking and finding some disappointments just might lead some people to not wanting to grow them BUT...

with the prices I found at Home Depot and Lowe's this year it's worth it for us to treat ourselves to $10.00 worth of dahlias that provide months of blooms. Saving the tubers gets more difficult for me as I get older but if you like them, save them.

I decided that I am going to label them now before I have a rush to do so. I will label height, name (or color), size of flower. I have yellow tags to use. I thought that would save me some time later. I used some for table decorations. They loved them.

They really are. I wish I could spend all day out in the yard. Full time work isn't fun anymore. I have a 4 Lady Darlene that have 2 in one flowers on many stems, it is quite interesting. The picture shows almost a purple flower but it is orange/pink/yellow. It is a beautiful color.

4 is the # of Lady Darlene Dahlias that I have. I got most of mine from Alpha Dahlia's. Evy was very nice and returned my emails promptly. I will order from them again.
I also got some from Breck's, they were very nice also.

MyRee - Lady Darlene has always been one of my favorites. I bought mine from Corralitos. Love their plants.
