Our friends gave us a bag of three dahlia tubers in the spring. The packaging label says ‘Fire and Ice’. I was afraid I had planted them upside down as it took very long before I was able to see anything growing in the pot. I have looking forward to see if they match the picture.
Now my ‘Fire and Ice’ is in bloom. It is very different from the picture . More fire than ice. The flowers are very beautiful. I have looked for images on the net and found some pictures that look like my flowers. They call them Anemone Dahlia. I think that is what mine is.
There will be many, many flowers. Here is the first one in bloom.
Isn’t it very much like anemones or what ?
Fire yes, ice no. No matter what, I love it. I hope it will stay with us many years to come
