One of the 3 dahlias I grow. Love the color and form of this one. It was easy enough for me (a newbie gardener) to grow. Hopefully it comes back next season.

So glad to see someone posting a photo.

In warmer climates you may be able to leave the tubers in the ground with heavy mulch. But for me, in Zone 6, I have to dig the tubers before first frost. Clean and let dry well. Pack in dry peat and store in cool dry place.
