Spotted at Wisley

This was my favourite dahlia at Wisley, and this is where I saw it (worth clicking on to enlarge:

The trial fields. I'm sorry that my hand shook as I took the picture of the other side:

I don't normally like these but I think they look amazing en masse:


  1. Never seen anything like this dahlia! Pretty!

  2. I never get to the trial fields at Wisley. By the time I've looked at all my favourite bits (the Hobhouse garden, the rock garden, the vegetable garden, the Tom Stuart Smith planting round the new glasshouse) the siren call of the plant centre is too strong to resist. Next time!

  3. I haven't walked down to the trial beds for some years as I couldn't but now I can walk again properly I must make time to go and look before the summer's out.
    I agree with your remarks on my Maize maze post regarding the children.

  4. So glad to see you on here again. I have never seen a dahlia like that either! It is stunning. Looks like a great time!

  5. WOW, what a flower! Awesome shot! ;-D

  6. OMG!! I iwsh I hadn't visited your blog, darn it, such wonderful photos. I NEED to go to Wisley. Thanks for sharing a bit of it with me for now xx
