Delightful Dahlia

Dahlias may not be as popular as roses, but to me they are among the stars of summer.

I have been growing this delightful pink dahlia for three years now, and it has never disappointed me.  As long as I keep dead heading, it continues to flower throughout the summer and into autumn until the first frost.  The leaves then turn brown and die out but if I keep the tuber and plant it again next spring, it will come out and flower again in the summer.
