darn it - I don't know what color my dahlias are!

I grew a few plants of dahlia "bishop's children" this summer. A couple of them have a lovely leaf and flower color - they are definitely "keepers". But a couple others have flower buds which may not get a chance to bloom, what with the arctic blast coming tonight. Darn it! I don't intend to dote over dahlia tubers (anti-fungal treatment, over-wintering) which may turn out to be yucky looking. Fingers crossed.. maybe they'll squeeze out a single bloom. ;-)

Meanwhile, out of a dozen helenium plants, they all bloomed and I know which ones I want to keep. Ditto the mexican hat.

Has time run out for you, too, on deciding whether to keep/pitch certain plants?
