Dahlias

I loved the pink edging on these dahlias found at Chicago Botanic Garden, no idea what variety though.

Such crisp detail! I thought, at first, that it was a lotus-flower banner (the coloring kind of looks like some common lotuses). But dahlias are pretty all the same! Excellent banner.

Very pretty dahlias---I like seeing both a side and a top view of the blooms in your banner.

Thank you everyone! I sometimes get tempted to try dahlias, but I don't want to add taking them out of ground every fall to my already full chore list at that time. Lazy gardener! Hilarious!

Nope, tried it. I would lose half the tubers every winter, they just wouldn't come back. Too much work unless you want to treat them like an annual.
