    If you cut the dead buds off the dahlia it will keep flowering until the frosts. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    The top photo might be Selinum Wallichianum, Milk Parsley.
  • I wondered please if anyone knew what the dahlia variety might be please?

    There are so many dahlias!  It could be "Bishop of Oxford",  but l'm not sure whether the foliage is dark enough. 
  • It’s a very distinctive dahlia - not like other dahlias - it’s very wirey and over 2m tall with small orange flowers. I grow lots of regular dahlias but this one is different, many thanks

    It's a very nice one, quite natural looking. According to Google there's a species dahlia called D. coccinea which looks rather similar.
  • Thanks, but I don’t think it’s that one as it says height 60cm only

    I think it could be dahlia coccinea strain, for example Dahlia Coccinea Mary keen can grow upto 2 metres I don't think its Mary keen though its not red enough.
