Dahlias the size of dinner plates

The dahlias are doing spectacularly in their new location. I’m amazed – the soil in that bed didn’t look too great, and it seemed a bit on the small side. But they are growing and flowering like crazy. Check out the photo of the white dahlia – it really is almost as big as a dinner plate; and so heavy that the plant needs extra support to prevent it from collapsing under the weight of the flower.
