We won't fault you for liking plants other than Dahlias. Feel free to share photos of other plants you're growing here.

Its pretty amazing to see dahlias, tulips and poppies all blooming at the same time. I would rather spread them out like nature does so I can enjoy each in their own time.

Ohhh I will love this thread, love seeing what others grow. Once I get into my new dahlia blooms, I'll be able to add to that bloom thread.

Here are some of my favorites from the past years. I grow almost 60 roses, some daylilies, clematis, pelargoniums, a few remaining iris (since the gophers love them) and many other plants.

Sue, what a beautiful collection! I am completely ignorant to clematis. Is the top left photo a clematis?

Stunning photos, Sue. What an inspiration!

Sue, do all clematis have a scent or has it been bred out of them, similar to commercial roses. and carnations. What does the scent resemble (if anything)? Would clematis make good commercial cut flowers? Google doesn't seem to help me find much info.

btw... Beautiful photos! Are you getting the background blur with the lens or in post processing? Those are professional quality.

Yes, many clematis can be good cut flowers. I have never heard of them grown as commercial flowers, don't know.
Not many are fragrant, other than the obviously named sweet autumn clematis, and several of the species and cultivars related to those species like C. armandii and C. montana.

Here's a 2 page of fragrant list I found from a UK vendor:
https://www.thorncroftclematis.co.uk/quick-selection-lists/s...

I have Rhapsody, guess I need to smell it! And I have evergreen C. armandii 'Snowdrift', two plants in different parts of the yard and when it blooms, I can smell it when I step out my back door, just divine! Cell phone photo below of Snowdrift growing over a big rose.

OH yes! I used to have Clematis Armandii and it was such a joy when it bloomed! IT does freeze back at lower temps over winter though so sometimes we had blooms and then other years got only leaves as it made its slow way back. Clematis Montana used to grow up my back porch and all along the balcony to my 2nd floor bedroom deck.. It smelled wonderful when it bloomed.

I had several varieties of clematis that I used in cut flower bouquets at our last house. They did pretty good in bouquets if cut just as they were popping open. The foliage of these was nice in bridal work also.

And beauty is in the eye of the beholder and perhaps this one has cataracts.

Anyone judging dahlia colors who has cataracts needs to self correct the "yellow" appearance...cataracts turn things yellowish, and that is from the voice of experience! Just saying.....
