I have these huge pinkI have these huge pink dahlias that just bloomed. Plate sized. About 2 weeks ago. I live in Wisconsin. I see no problems with the greenery or stems or anything. But the flower itself is starting to look like its dying already? Are dahlias only supposed to last a couple weeks? Or is something wrong? Am I not feeding it enough? Watering it enough? We have had fairly good weather. Minimal rain. But last week, all week it was almost 100 every day with heat index. Could that have been it? It lasted for almost 4 days. Then dropped back down to normal temps of 70's-80's. But is getting really cold at night. Last night down to 40's. could the weather be killing the flowers? Thank you!
