first dahlia blossom of 2009

For the record: “Little Beeswings” wins! The first bloom was opening as of Saturday, 18 July 2009. Last year, “Bloodstone” was the first, on 14 July.

So here’s how it has played out this year:
  • 5 May 2009: Planted dahlia tubers
  • 18 June 2009: Planted dahlias outside
  • 10 July 2009: First buds on dahlias
  • 18 July 2009: First bloom—“Little Beeswings”
And last year:
  • 22 April 2008: Planted dahlia tubers
  • 1 June 2008: Planted dahlias outside
  • 28 June 2008: First buds on dahlias
  • 14 July 2008: First bloom—“Bloodstone”
