I went to look at my dahlia garden today-( I didn't go out at all yesterday b/c of drenching rain all day) and was shocked to see that 'Croydon Masterpiece' had produced a 10" bloom! It is supposed to be a 'B'. It's a full 4" thick, too- there goes my suposition that the cool weather makes for small blossoms. 'Strawberry Ice' had two whoppers as well. In fact, they're all blooming like crazy (with a few complete failures that won't bloom this year). This proves that lots of water= bigger blossoms; temps don't seem to be a factor (except when it comes to the blossom lasting longer- 80 degrees makes them go bust fast). I ADORE this dahlia! It did so well this year- and is still producing.
