Ruby Red Clanger

After the disasters of losing my dahlias last year due to being frozen solid in the ground and not really finding any tubers that I really wanted I bought a packet of Clangers mixed dahlia seeds and they were worth sowing although they are a mix of colours and forms. This ruby red beauty is in the terrace bed and after the wind and rain it's still looking good they have also survived without staking these are definitely one I'll grow from seed again might try saving the one's I really like.

You going to lift your dahlias ?  Would be a pity to loose that one.

Will lift it and hopefully it'll survive the winter also have a white one beside it although not in flower at this moment will lift it as well.
