Funny Dahlia Buds
Some of the buds on this Dahlia are hanging upside down, and instead of further developing them and opening them out it’s growing new ones.
Should I take off the upside down ones or will they eventually turn and flower?
Most dahlias I've grown bend down like that. Your plant looks perfectly fine to me😊

Perfectly normal. They’re all like that. When they’re ready to open they’ll straighten up and smile at you 😃

I love those buds - shyly hanging their heads before lifting them to dazzle you with their glorious flowers.
