The first #dahlia of 2019 and one of the few tubers I managed to successfully overwinter! Even the newly purchased tubers have taken an age to get going so at this rate I’ll be getting a really late display. Let’s hope there are no early frosts! 🤞 #mygardentoday 06/07/2019

It’s a very reliable dahlia, Tracey, and should produce lots of flowers as the season continues 🤞 @wilko

Yesterday I had happy hydrangeas and today I have Delightful Dahlias! Finally I have two flowers on ‘Mary Evelyn’, an overwintered tuber from last year. #dahlia #firstflowers #maroonflowers #mygardentoday 31/07/2018

I’m amazed that it got through the winter, Rich, as it was left in an unheated greenhouse with no special protection. It’s a really strong plant so I’m hoping for lots more flowers over the coming weeks. @richard.spicer.7906

This caught my eye just now. The #dahlia petals have just fallen off revealing a beautiful centre and a star-shaped backing. #mygardentoday #natureatitsbest

Don't you think that the smaller petals look as though they were once white but the colour has run? @katgreen 😂
