Dahlias are a late season flower, really late for us and we have a ton of them. We are celebrating this abundance by dropping the price so do not miss out. The stems are long and strong and the blooms are fantastic, saturated with color.
Our lisianthus, another late blooming flower, are beautiful and loving the cooler temps. Blooming slows down, but the plants are thriving and producing perfect flowers.
I have been keeping a keen watch on the roses because the best bloom in late August and early September. Marvelous fragrant heads on long stems, the colors vary from pale ivory to deep apricot, often on the same plant. Their sweet scent fills the air and calls in every bee for miles.
The zinnias are amazing and producing like mad, unaffected by the cooler days. We have the full a rainbow of colors: white, lime, yellow, orange, red, coral and pink.
Each morning RT makes his rounds sure there is nothing to harvest and returns time after time with armloads of beautiful flowers so watch the trucks carefully as they will be loaded with lots of little goodies, ten or so bunches, too few to put on the availability list.
