Garden blogger Noel from A Plant Fanatic in Hawaii challenges us to find the Hottest, Loudest, and Proudest flora.  Quick thanks to the Conservatory of Flowers for their seasonal gardens.  Can I get a holla for these fine Dahlias?

So there you have it.  Here is a quick overview of the Dahlia garden.  They are going to get a lot taller.  These guys put out a lot of foliage and flowers.  The gardener’s technique is to trim the small and week branches and flowers in order to get tall and soccer ball sized flowers.
