Day 136/366

Inspired by Helen at Little Flower Blog I've posted my photograph of a tree dahlia which I took on Saturday morning at an open garden.

The garden, Wesenden, at Springwood, is part of the Open Garden Scheme.

I forgot to take the DSLR camera so used Mr Honey Pie's mobile telephone, which has a better camera than mine. Picture has therefore been heavily edited.

I have come across a tree dahlia only once before in my life; in a local backyard garden just last year.
The 'tree' is so tall that it soared above the six foot paling fence of the garden.  
It wasn't until blogger Ian Percy posted
about tree dahlias did I know what a tree dahlia was.


  1. SP, I have never heard of a tree dahlia. Thanks for the photograph of one - Dave

  2. Yay, I am pleased to see your Tree Dahlia looks just like the one I spotted! Aren't they amazing plants? I did a bit of Googling and found out that they grow from canes planted horizontally in the ground, so we asked the owners of the plant for a bit and hopefully some time in the future we will have one of our very own :)
