You may have noticed that we have blooming dahlias again along the perimeter fence. We were contacted by Kristi from the San Leandro Dahlia Society in May about planting dahlias in our garden and she started planting almost immediately. Kristi has been growing dahlias at The Gardens at Lake Merritt in Oakland for the past 5 years, and has loved their beauty since she first saw them about 30 years ago. There are all shapes and sizes in the garden from giant cactus-like flowers to miniature balls. The dahlias should be in bloom through the end of September (and maybe beyond) so be sure to check them out.
