A bit more color in the dahlia garden today! I have gone from one variety blooming to three. The first open-centered dahlia is in bloom; the "NTAC Shelly", pictured above.
It would be hard to miss the first bloom of "Haley's Dream" ! That wonderful hot pink jumps right out from the sea of green dahlia plants. I have 5 "Haley's Dream" plants this year, so I should have lots and lots of these wonderful blooms until frost. I also have the second bloom open on my "Blyton's Softer Gleam". Thankfully this bloom is much better than the first bloom that opened 9 days ago. The color on this bloom perfectly matches its description of a light blend of orange and yellow.
