Dahlias From Seed - Bloomin' Tuesday

Here are some of the Dahlias I started from seed in February...thanks Lona! There are still a few Dahlias that haven't bloomed yet.

I still do not know how this Dahlia got here..I sure am enjoying it though. (yes those are onions behind it)

The Larkspur is starting it's show on the red brick castle wall. I have 5 Hydrangeas some Monarda and a very tall skinny white Butterfly bush in this area as well. Please ignore the HUGE very old container of Bromeliad, Queen's Tears in the back right..don't quite know what to do with it.

Today I am Thankful!

Darla, your garden is so gorgeous and adds a bright spot in our dreary day. I cannot believe how much color you have already. Just look at the garden show going on with those dahlias.
I posted your upcoming poppies today., just for you.

So glad the seeds worked well for you. They look so pretty. Your Larkspur looks so wonderful with the petunias. Have a great week.

Wow! You have seed Dahlias blooming in April?! I start a bunch from seed every year, and mine are still tiny plants. I don't usually get flowers until August.

They're very pretty!

Dahlias from seeds! I had no idea but wow I am going to have to try this. Love the headline photo, have not seen a hummingbird moth in years.

Sandy said...

You always know the proper name for your plants (and mine..lol) thanks for the sweet comments on my Trumpet.. We have been in the 90's down here in Clearwater for two weeks now..so mine are faster to bloom....

Zoey said...

Dahlias from seeds -- I am so impressed! Beautiful.

Jean said...

You have such great luck with seeds. I may need to take lessons! All the Dahlias are lovely but the soft pink is my favorite. Jean

sweetbay said...

Your dahlias look great. I especially like the very pale pink one with the golden center. One year I grew some dahlias from trade seeds and got just about every color of the rainbow ~ sadly, in spite of my efforts, I lost most over a winter. Time to grow more!

Cindy said...

I have never done dahlias from seeds. I may try it next winter.

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Wow, beautiful blooms! Thanks for the sweet quote about Grandmothers! A keeper for sure!


Melynda said...

I have a red dahlia to get planted, I am probably late! Your garden is truly lovely.
