comment

Yes it was the close up that looked to have a yellower middle bit this looks similar. Ive been cutting mine back too as it's a fast grower. I'm considering moving it to be honest so it has its own space to show off on the lawn. Thanks for replying . Have a great day! We have sunshine! 😎😎🌞🌞 gardening here I come!

comment

@SylviaDavies there is one called snowmound so that may be slightly different in variety but Id say due to how your flowers grow into a wreath I would say its def Bridal wreath, mine don't get as many wreaths due to how I cut it back into a ball but as they grow fast I have to keep it that way for my small border 😃 Suns shining here too and im off so will be in garden pottering as not much more to do now but wait for the blooms to open 😊

Thank you! Lucky you @Keely . I've two borders to create to help house my 60 odd dahlias. Its a late season here as its only a couple of weeks since the frost went. Desperate to get them out now and im limited to weekends and half term really. Hopefully make some headway today! 👋
