I just wanted to share my lovely Dahlias with you. This is the first year that I have grown them and I am so pleased with them.  I will be growing them again next year.

Love the purple and white one

Thank you Singy, I don't know their names my husband got them from a car boot sale.

Think it might be Dahlia "Duet"

I live fairly near to the  national dahlia collection.  A visit there last year prompted a few additional purchases.  Now have several varieties.  I am getting to like them more ....wonderful colours but no fragrance and no "form".

Wow, love that purple and white one, gorgeous donutsmrs

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Verdun, they might not have any fragrance but who cares when they look like that, do you now have your own Dahlia collection?

Agree donutsmrs

I don't have my own collection but have a few.......they are complementing my grasses and other perennials perfectly. Twynings  After Eight is fabulous dahlia......near black foliage and simple white flowers.
