In A Vase On Monday – Dahlia Bowl

In A Vase On Monday – Dahlia Bowl

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of cuttings from our gardens.

Dahlias have seemed cheered by a few rains and some slightly cooler days the past couple weeks.

Dahlia ‘Tsuku Yori No Shisha’

I cut all available flowers to encourage them to keep up the good work.  These are arranged into a low flat bowl with a hint of columbine foliage.

Although I have cut the plants back several times the stems are still quite short.

      That cactus dahlia is finally producing better-formed and larger flowers. I always see it as white, but you’re right! It does have a lemony accent.

    Lovely dahlias. I stuck my toe into the dahlia gardening business this year and was a total failure. I’m going to do some more research this fall and winter while they’re stored and see if I can come up with a better plan for next season.

      Thanks Judy. I had beginner’s luck last year and those dahlias returned. None of my new ones from this year have done much and many didn’t live at all. They are wonderful to have though.

    That bowl really is brilliant for this sort of arrangement – I was going to say I have nothing like it, but I may well surprise myself if I looked round all my various vases! The ‘Tsuku Yori No Shisha’ dahlia is so striking and reminds me of coral. I am sure there will be many stories flying around as your election approaches, especially as the outcome is still uncertain

      Glad you like the bowl Cathy. I’ve been having trouble finding other vases in my probably much smaller collection than yours that work with my dahlias. I agree the outcome is uncertain but I hope people decide not to run the country further into the ground. It’s been surreal.

    I love that fluffy white dahlia, Susie – it’s a beauty. I planted one white-flowered variety this year (‘Iceberg’) but it’s only just now formed its first bud. I think you commented at one point that your dahlias had disappointed you this year but your crop is looking good to me!

    I’m sorry your state is in the center of the action this week. While I usually try to pay attention to both sides of the political divide, I don’t think I can stomach the guff likely to be trotted out this week – my tolerance was used up long ago. Best wishes on weathering the storm(s).

      Thanks Kris. Hope your iceberg dahlia does well. Fortunately I don’t think we’ll see anything from the storms. I watched last week’s convention and thought it was well done. Doubt I can tolerate much of the one this week.

    They are beautiful flowers and in tremendous condition considering you’ve had rain. The white cactus dahlia is stunning, but my favourite is always D. ‘Gallery Art Deco’.

      I’m not sure the dahlias were speaking. There’s not much else going on in my garden that is vase-worthy, so maybe I heard what I wanted to!
