Dahlia deluge

Red dahlias

My dahlia patch has gone berserk. After what seems like weeks of rain, the sun has finally put in an appearance, and so too have my dahlias. Previously the odd bloom was seen poking its head out amongst the sweet peas and achilleas, but now they’re running riot. Seen here are a mix of pompom and cactus dahlias. The red cactus dahlias are a mighty 22-25cm in diameter!


  1. Absolutely stunning photos. Thanks for sharing. I love the colours together. I’m a dahlia-fanatic, planted another 8 types this year and love the surprises of the colours together as they come out.

    • Thanks Kim. I’m definitely a dahlia fanatic too. There are so many different varieties, colours, shapes and sizes to choose from, it’s amazing. No doubt I’ll be planting more next year too!

  2. Great post! People in the Waikato, don’t forget we have a Dahlia Show coming up on 11-12 February at Hamilton Gardens.
