Right, these are more favourite Dahlias. Dahlia Profundo is the darker pink one. It’s not a big dahlia, but the little pink single is really tiny; it’s tubers are tiny too. It was a favourite of C’s mum, given to me by his aunt. Although it’s so small it has real presence, with the fully open flowers standing straight up and facing outward.
For scent, English Rose Gertrude Jekyll, Keith Hammet Dianthus ‘Scent from Heaven’, and ‘Angel of Charm’ and Scented Geraniums Apple and Nutmeg.
Although the mornings are noticeably darker now, the days are still hot. UK and North America are having late snow and cold weather but there are brave Spring flowers for in a Vase on Monday at Rambling in the Garden.
