Dahlia

I have been asked last week how big or small are my Dahlias. Thankfully the yellow one my Aunt took a measurement tape and measure it. And the other day I also measure my smallest Dahlia.

                                                                     About 7 inches.
                                                                Less than 2 inches
I still can see blossoms but I doubt it if the flowers could make it. We already had frost at night. I just wonder how to keep this plants from dying in Winter. My step-daughter told me to re-plant it in a pot and my Aunt says dig the tubes and keep it. I search online and I found one solution cut the stem and the roots should be covered with a lot of leaves. And I think I will do that. ^_^

They are so sweet and special at any size. Beautiful colors. Replanting would be a great idea. They are pretty hardy flowers.
