Big, bold and unforgettable, Dahlias are a stand out flower that encapsulate all the vibrancy and vitality of summer.
When planted in full sun, Dahlias will produce an abundance of big, pom-pom shaped flowers. Flowers start to emerge in late summer and will quickly cover the plant, lasting until late April or May. Make sure you trim dead flowers from your plants and don’t be afraid to pick them to display indoors – this kind of gentle trimming encourages continual flower production.
Dahlias will die down over winter, but provided the ground doesn’t get too soggy, they reemerge from their tubers come spring. They make fantastic flowering borders and will also do well in pots. Plant them in moist, well-drained soil in full sun for best results.
