Amaryllis Graffiti and Kashmir Dahlia

Today i will share pictures of Amaryllis Graffiti and Kashmir Dahlia from my garden. Kashmir dahlia is also called indian dahlia here but it is not from india. It is from holland. It is propagated from cuttings. These are raised and grown in cool areas like hilly mountains of Murree and then brought to warm areas in winter. It needs protection from fog and sever winter. It likes to be fed well and needs lot of energy to put large flowers. It goes dormant in summer and keeping it in soil bed is best option instead of digging and storing. It will re sprout in late summer. Not every indian dahlia is dinner plate. Full sun is must for good flowers. Remove spent flowers as soon as possible. This one is flowering on my terrace in a clay pot.

    Hello Muhammad, thanks for visiting my site. I love dahlia but they will not do good in our lowland hot climate, but amaryllis we can. I love the color of your amaryllis, it is just not very common to have different colors here with us!
