Our Hardiest Dahlia

Here's our first dahlia bloom of the year! This plant's bulb survived the long, harsh winter in the ground, which means I may never dig up bulbs for the winter ever again (if I did so in the past).

Our First Dahlia

Dahlias are tubers, not bulbs. Don't ask; I don't know what the distinction is.

In your youth you did dig dahlias.

Right. Tubers, like potatoes.

. . . What do they taste like?

I've never been brave enough to try even a little-teeny bite.
