Dhalia dilemma. Orange Nugget ??!!

Posted: 14/08/2015 at 21:48
The tuber was sealed in its packet so I can't assume it got muddled up. It's label stated Dhalia Orange Nugget. So it is only just about to flower but in the mean time it's foliage has grown enormous. It's main stem is more like a trunk, although still green, it is the girth of a fat cucumber. It ha engulfed all other small plants which were Atleast half a metre away from where we planted the tuber. Also I had trouble with wasps chomping some leaf stems until the leaf broke off from the stem. Does anyone have any ideas because orange nugget is meant to be fairly compact isn't it ?? I will upload a picture in Little while so you can see.

Hi there nannybeach, thanks for the dead heading advice.
The lilly in my first picture that you asked about only has a very faint smell to it. Unfortunately I don't know the exact type, the pack was labeled as 'Asiatic mix', sorry I can't be of more help.
I don't think I have any lily beetles, what are the signs?

Also to 1runnybeak1, that two colour lily is 1 from a pick labeled 'Asiatic mix'.

Looking good Baza.
My 'Russian Giants' just keep going up, no sign of heads forming yet. If I remember right, first time I grew these they didn't flower until mid to late September.
When I get on my laptop later I will put up some pictures.
And I'll get the tape Measure out too.

Hee hee. I swear every time I turn my back my sunflowers gain an inch or 2. It's kinda unbelievable how fast they grow.
