I have a dahlia that I am still waiting for it to show any signs of wanting to flower. I started it from seed early last year, put it in the ground this year, and it is now about 4' tall with huge leaves and not a single bud.

These are very old tubers but earlier this year I treated myself to a "dinner plate" size Dahlia called 'Mom's Surprise'. Well it was a surprise. One flower so far, about two inches across. Hardly dinner plate size. Maybe I got a duff tuber. It wasn't cheap either.

Wylie,have you been feeding it every week?That starts early on in the season...Initially,when you see growth for the first time,it needs to be reduced to only 5 stems.Hope this helps.
