Relax. It's only a small setback.
This is a great, bright dahlia. I don't often go for single petal blooms, but Pooh holds up well enough for cutting. Good stems, plenty of flowers, and eye-grabbing colors including the slightly frilled center collar.
Left, grown in brighter sun, right grown in 4-5 hours of sun.

This is the 2nd year I've tried to grow "Pooh" and it appears I'm not getting any blooms yet again. Fortunately the tuber didn't rot in the ground like the it did the first year. Hopefully I'll have a tuber or two when I dig it up this year. I think I'll try again next year with Pooh and also try out RaeAnn's Torch which looks pretty similar.

This looks like a perfect candidate for my garden - late bloomer AND a good cut flower. I have a Narnia blooming now and it also has the same coloring.

I wouldn't say it's exactly a late bloomer for me Dianne, mid season at latest, but it just keeps on going. Hurray!

I DID find a great little white late bloomer though and thought of you instantly- Apollo, waterlily, 3' tall. I'll get you a photo later. http://www.dahlia.org/guide/images/APOLLO.jpg
Mine are more FD looking and just began blooming in the past couple weeks, having been planted in early June, I think.

Here is Pooh with friends. You can't see it here but mine only get a touch of yellow on the tips of the petals.

Great photo Tgarland. I recall that the bees here seem to like Pooh as well. Bright colors, perhaps?

Phyllis, what a stretch of glory we have coming up! I'm planting my few most developed dahlias tomorrow despite the cool night temps. Spring is finally springing here!

All the rain you guys had up in Washington is down here in CA now - raining for 3 days in a row. Glad the sun is finally out for you.

It seems like the last week they've forecasted rain but most of the time it's been sunshine minus 1 or 2 days . I wish I'd planted last week. Think I'll plant RaeAnn's Torch right next to Pooh and see if there's a big difference between the two if I can get both to bloom this year.

How are you holding up for dahlia space this year, Eric? Seems like you were expanding beds somewhere? My best laid plans to convert a sunnier portion of a perennial bed to dahlias, will probably fall by the wayside again. It is pure rocks interspersed with occasional soil Blinking

Blinking with our prolonged winter and wet spring, I'm just not goint to get to it unless it's in mid- June. Kind of late!

Pffff, my laziness is becoming a problem again this year. I suppose I should take care of at least one of three flower beds I had planned to do this year.
