Looking down on this dahlia?

It is Dahlia cactus Orfeo pictured here  with  Pennisetum setaceum Rubrum. This past May I got dahlia  tubers from de Jagar Bulbs and grew them on in pots to pop into vacant ground to bouff up a garden for a September wedding.   With the squirrely grass, rescue came to a difficult  yellow wall in the site-line of the nuptial handshake queue.

Black and magenta provided the perfect foil.  We are talking plant installation for a wedding as I do not suppose for a moment that either of these subjects could slug it out in the heat at the base of the wall.  Agapanthus will be the great blue hope for a proper planting.

The wall follows below in all its yellowness.
