I do like that Dahlia - I'm generally not too fond of the very bright 'in your face' types but this I could happily grow in my garden.
Thanks Angie! I think it all depends on its situation. I am hoping to surround this one with some white froth. ~Julie
I love Dahlias too and this Jean-Marie is a beautiful one!
I've never grown Dahlias, but they are so beautiful! I think I like them more and more as the years go by--I don't know why.
I have had my dahlias in since May and with all the rain you would think they would be blooming but they are barely 2 ft tall...I think i may just give up on growing these. Yours is so beautiful.
Thanks Donna! I plant mine up in pots in the basement in March/April and then out in the garden at the end of May. I have just planted them out in May before and not had any blooms before they frosted in October, so that is the safer route if you live in zone 5 or colder. Hope that helps!~Julie
Jean-Marie is one of my favorite dahlias, your picture is beautiful! My dihlias as off to a slow start this year, I think it's becuase of all our rain, over 14 inches in July. Hope to have blooms soon.thanks for sharing...cehck out my Japanese Iris, a couple pictures.MichaelMy Japanese Iris Pictures
