Dahlias are stopping the show!

Through a generous gift of plant material from Kathy Echols of Midhill Farms in Martinez, we were able to replace a bed of pincushion flowers with some gorgeous dahlias.  These specimens are beginning to hit their stride in the garden, and should tide us over until we hit the fall blooming periods for Chrysanthemums and roses.  Located in the parking area inside the garden, you won’t want to miss the blooms coming on as we speak.  It’s always a tough road planting during the heat of the summer, but these dahlias in particular have put up with the temperatures remarkably well and will be there for our mutual enjoyment for years to come!
