Dinnerplate Dahlia Collection
Questions? Call 1-800-342-9461
Blooms are gigantic, up to 1 foot across (the size of a dinner plate). Long-lasting blooms are impressive from July/August until the first frost makes showy cut flowers in colors from red, yellow, purple, pink, two-toned, and more. Proper pinching and disbudding yield the largest blooms. We suggest staking to support the enormous flower heads. Plants grow to about 36 inches tall. In colder zones, dig tubers in the fall and store them for replanting in spring. You get 5 gorgeous varieties, one each of 'Kelvin Floodlight' (yellow), 'Otto's Thrill' (pink), 'Zorro' (deep red), 'Lilac Time' (lavender), and 'Akita' (orange-red with white tips). Tubers are all bagged and labeled (not sold separately).
