New arrivals to my dahlia collection

   During last 2 weeks all of my dahlia tuber orders for this season finally arrived. So I can make an overview of my new arrivals and collect some pictures here.
   In the catalog of one Latvian dahlia farm I found a variety with name Olga and I couldn't resist to order it together with some laciniated varieties. I received perfect quality tubers that I could split even more to get 2-3 separate plants from each.

   From Accent Dahlias I received tubers of US bred varieties hard to find in Europe. I'm very excited about those and looking forward to see how well they will perform in my garden. Tubers are although small but of excellent quality, all are sprouting already.

   One more French order arrived 2 days ago from Conservatoire de la Société Française du Dahlia á Flamanville. Here I have ordered some French bred varieties together with 2 American varieties. Tubers are not in a best condition, some were rotten and others are pretty dry, but I hope they will survive anyway.

Of course, Irene, you are welcome! I just hope that they all will grow and bloom in my garden as great as they do in these pictures.
