I really hope someone introduces a Sellwood Glory offspring that's way easier to store and looks very similar. That one is up at the top of my favorites list. Lovely pictures.

I've never gotten any seeds from Sellwood Glory---maybe I should make an effort ..

Swan Island introduced a Sellwood G. look alike called Uncle B. I saw it a year ago and it is very similar to Sellwood Glory. Here is link to the selection:

Is Aaron Bradley similar to that one?

I believe Aaron Bradley is an older variety originated in Europe.

Thumb of 2018-06-20/vikingcraftsman/c8a702 This is black satin it should be about 4 inches across. This is the first bloom of the 2018 season for me. I am running about a month behind last year. This flower makes a great cut flower. We have had this flower in the collection for many years and is one of the wife's choice flowers.

Thumb of 2018-06-21/drewtheflorist/89d9ca a little seedling, not much depth and the petals too pointy to be a decent waterlily...

Some of the dahlias are blooming:

Camano Thunder -----------------------------------------K K K Katie

The K K K Katie in the front yard never did get lifted and divided this year; it has already produced dozens of blooms and been cut back.

HH Tangerine is nice and orange this year; it is planted where it gets afternoon shade hoping to avoid that rusty red look.

I will have to keep a mental note on HH Tangerine. The wife loves orange dahlias. They remind her of the shoes from Spain I threw away some 40 years ago. But I love to make her happy so I will buy nice orange dahlias for our collection anytime.

My first bloom this year -Arabian Nights. It is my 1st year with this one (I stored my mom's tubers for the winter & she shared some with me). So far I am really happy with it!

Arabian Night was introduced in 1951. It must be a real survivor as it is still around.

It is! I lost a ton of tubers this past year to shriveling (I tried storing in pine shavings, but my basement must be too dry). But all of the Arabian Nights made it & looked very healthy. I didn't have the heart to cut my 1st bloom, but the stems are strong. It looks like it will be good in a vase.

My second time around with HH Paris it neat to see how vigorous it grows , we pinched out the early center bud forming early this week on both plants but it’s probably not necessary with this variety as it’s maybe 30” tall but has very pronounced laterals already at each node or section

HH Paris was from a hand cross of a very old miniature cactus called Dainty Miss with one of Boley's seedlings of Mary Jo.. Paris is very vigorous and productive but as far as showing it, the center pops 2 minutes before the judges get around to judging it. Sometimes it holds on long enough to win some nice prizes. I do not believe I have successfully shown a triple of it as always one flower pops center. If you grow it as cut flower, it needs to be picked at just past half open. The color is one of those that is currently popular.
