Learning About Dahlias

20130811-131949.jpg This year my garden is full of flowers. One of the newbies is the Unwin's Mixed Dahlia. They bloom in a variety of colors and grew from seeds instead of from a tuber. I have so much to learn about these gorgeous Mexican blooms, so I'll be devouring the American Dahlia Society website for tips and more information on the numerous dahlia varieties.

Are you growing any new flowers or plants this year? Any surprises?

Hope you are enjoying the summer!
