Dahlia nibbling!

The nibbling always stops as soon as it reaches the red part of the petals. I find this curious as to why the insect will not eat the red part. 

See original post

 Yes that's what I was wondering too!

This is one that has its white edges but as you can see something has started on the bottom ones already. The one at the top has had them all eaten.

Well I did wonder about earwigs Mike, but I can't see any at all, and why would they just choose this particular one? I've got lots more but thankfully they don't seem to like them!

i have a lovely dark pink dahlia which should have white edges to its flowers, but something is just nibbling the white edges of the petals, leaving the dark areas!

i can't see anything on the plant at all that might be doing this, and none of my other dahlias have this problem. I'll post a photo tomorrow when it's daylight.

Any ideas please?

You are clearly not a DimWit! Yes it is. I have never heard of them before. You're right the leaves aren't succulent, but  leathery, it should enjoy my dry border. I don't know what type or how big it will get, but I can investigate that. Thank you

I bought this little plant today just because it has succulent type leaves and will hopefully do well in my dry border, got it home, no label! Any ideas please?

A very late update on this, several of them have flowered beautifully this year  I just left them to it! Beautiful colours especially one that is a rich purple.

 I didn't Lyn, I didn't know I should have done. Is it best to dig/ dry and replant them each year?
