This is the second dahlia variety to bloom this year, Hissy Fitz. It's a really thick, frilly, bright yellow dahlia that's almost a perfect globe shape when all the petals are unfurled. It's like having pom-poms waving in the garden every time I go out there! The flowers are approximately 5 inches wide. These dahlias are the ones I bought earlier this spring from a table in front of a house in town. They weren't labeled correctly, I should have five different colors instead of just two, but for just $1 or $2 for the root corms, I'll go back there next year and get more! Each plant will probably give off 24-30 flowers this season.
Bonus Flower : )
Small though they may be, the magenta morning glories are really beautiful. You can see little dots of white pollen all over the blossoms. The bees LOVE morning glories, and it's almost impossible to take a photo without a bee sitting inside the flower!
