After the Frost

What do the dahlias look like after a frost? They look pretty black and dead. Right now they are busy sending all of their energy down to the tubers. They will stay like this for a few more frosts. After a few weeks I will trim the stalks back to about 6″ and leave for another week or so. This should allow next year’s eyes to set.

Do your dahlias look like this right now too?
