Labella Maggiore Dahlia - Planted May 2021
Part of the newly carved out beds in our backyard - near our patio - are the only real shots we have for a lot of Sun in the back. As part of the whole transplanting/order of operations stuff, I transplanted a bunch of our peonies up here and left some spots for annuals. Well, I treat dahlias as annuals - and don't keep the tubers like a good gardener should - so when I found this bicolor dahlia at a good price, I grabbed it and popped it right into the ground. It is called a "Labella Maggiore rose bicolor dahlia" and it seems to be off to a decent start in the ground:
I've grown dahlias in the ground before over in this area and I think that will be a nice feature to replicate every year. I'll keep these wet and then mulch them in shortly.
