My dahlias have rather randomly appeared in different parts of the garden. This cerise beauty lives underneath the Graham Thomas roses in the Jelly Bean Garden. I can see its flowers from the house decking.
Inspired Colour Combination
Late in the summer the dahlia and its beautiful yellow rose-neighbour Graham Thomas will flower together. This is an inspiring colour combination - one I wish I could claim to be purposefully planned. Don't the dahlia and the rose look great together!
But, like in other parts of my garden, my dahlias have planted themselves somewhat randomly. Oh well - perhaps they know best!
Provided my watering system works, and I remember to indulge in a little secret staking, the cerise dahlia will last well into May, which is late autumn.
