3 Facts About Dahlias Purple and White Tips

purple and white dahlia flowers The very early days when SO and I moved to our first home, we spotted these purple and white tips Dahlias. There was no doubt about our "love at first sight" for them. The flowers had to come home with us, and be part of our lives. And they did. We planted the purple and white tips dahlias by the porch along the walkway in our front yard. 
Since then, they have wowed many of our friends, and amazed SO and I year after year. The original spot where I had planted them was great, but after the second splitting of the bulbs with my relatives, the flowers got very weak. A couple of years ago, I took what was left and moved it to the back yard. Carefully, nurturing them and remembering where the bulbs were planted to water them. They took two years to produce flowers like these.

  6. I remember when I first heard the name dahlia. I was a child and I loved that name. A girl had it and then I learned that a flower had it and I wanted to name a daughter the name.

    Very beautiful!
