Night Queen Dahlias - In Bloom July 2018
Back in March, I shared a photo of a set of Night Queen Dahlia tubers that I picked up and planned to put in a container this Spring. This year, I planted two different varieties of Dahlias including these Firebird Semi Cactus Dahlias that I've shared an update on in early June. Above you see a photo of the blooms from the Night Queen variety that I took this week. There are about a dozen or so blooms that have sprung up - some on strong stems - others on thin stems that can't quite handle the weight of these colorful blooms.
I posted this same photo earlier this week on my backyard/garden Instagram handle @HornbeamHill.
Nat thinks that we need to have these dahlias in the ground, not in pots next year and that might be right, but I do like having them grace our patio with their beauty, not to mention that our patio gets the most sun of anywhere in the yard.
