[Note September 24, 2021: After reviewing my records I have identified the mystery white dahlia as Dahlia Dinnerplate Break Out.]
Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
The white dahlia in today’s vase was expected to be peach-colored Dahlia Dinnerplate ‘Fairway Spur’. This is the first flower from it to open and there was a slight suggestion of pink on a couple of the petals before it opened. The only peach tones today are from last week’s Hypericum berries, which continue to look fresh.
