The First Dahlias of the Season

The dahlias are growing so nicely this season, and some are already beginning to show off those colorful flowers that bloom from midsummer right through the first frost.

The dahlia garden is tucked behind my vegetable greenhouse in an area exposed to full sun and protected from strong winds. My dahlias are from Floret, a family farm and floral design studio in the State of Washington. We also have some from Swan Island Dahlias in Oregon, a family owned business and the largest and leading dahlia grower in the United States. And, a selection comes from The Flower Hat, based in Bozeman, Montana.

Enjoy these photos of some of the season's first dahlia blooms and have a lovely July 4th weekend.
