I'm betting after all the dahlia coments you'll be hitting me up next spring for more tubers and joining the Utah Dahlia Society (shameless plug) :)

Sign me up, KC --
I thought everyone would love the Bellflower ~ so lessons learned. I'll need loads more tubers next season!!! :D

Happy Wordless Wednesday, everyone!

Feel free to write to KC if you'd like to grow some Dahlias! She's the pro.

I enjoyed looking at your last several posts. I was fooled about the dahlias. I planted 3 pairs of different kinds of dahlias that were purchased at a garden center. Four came up, but one died, so I have 2 of one kind, and one of another. One of the pair's blooms are double, and the other single.

I had decided I wasn't going to plant dahlias next year, because they take so long to come up, but after seeing the butterflies enjoying them, I may change my mind.
