Dahlias


Dahlias

The Dahlias have sprung back to life again. The 'Mom's Special' on the left and far right a cutting from it last year. Still plain mauve. I think SBG was right when I asked the question about cuttings being a clone. Maybe too unstable. Plus it was bought as a dinner plate Dahlia and isn't even saucer size.

Mine get a late start every year, so I won't be getting the first flower for a while.

These will be getting ready to finish if we get the frost we've been forecast. They did have a blip when we got those 36 and 37 degree days and I thought I might lose some but they've come back from it.

Our weather has finally gone below 70°F and the long pants have come out. All my South African bulbs are enjoying the drop in temperatures.

You have a nice collection of dahlias Thorneyside. I like the mauve "Mom's special'.

What a lovely array of colour! I’m pleased you’ve had a second flush!

Thank you. The one on the left was the original tuber of 'Mom's Special' Klahanie. Flecked mauve and white but the cutting I took last year is just mauve.The other flower on the original plant is half and half, top flecked, bottom mauve. I thought a cutting was a clone of the plant but obviously not in this case.

I have several Dahlias which are doing exactly the same,Thorneyside (not cuttings) Same plant blooms in different colourings to the point I cannot believe that it is a same dahlia.
One of them is called "Lake Ontario" I think it does not know what it wants to be.
I "goggled" Mom's Special....its pretty.
