Glory Daze
Flower and photo by John Hibbs

I don’t know when Glory Daze was introduced to dahlia lovers. More obscure than other varieties in our series, she is still available from a limited number of sellers. The plants are hearty but not sturdy; ample stems are thin but no matter, as the flower is airy and still stands upright. The 3-4’ plants dependably produce many 4-6” blooms that last better than most other varieties in bouquets.

The bright yellow petals are long and narrow, radiating from the blossom’s center as they blush with pale orange, a classic Stellar dahlia form. Like so many other dahlia blooms that are painted with more than one color, in bouquets Glory Daze brightens and combines broadly with most color schemes.

This Tuesday is our last placement of new bouquets at the Ridgecrest Pub (5th NE and NE 165th) for this season.

The last of the crop will be at the Pub for a donation, all this week.

Thanks to everyone who supported this program to share flowers and bring in a little money for the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center.
