Dahlias are grown for their gorgeous, colorful flowers that bloom from midsummer through autumn. They are stunning in patio containers or flower gardens and start blooming when most perennials begin to fade, offering fantastic late-season color. These dahlias are the large-flowered type, referred to as dinner plate dahlias, and grow to 3-4 ft tall. They require staking to support the tall foliage and large flowers and can be pinched back to produce bushier plants with smaller flowers. 

Emory Paul has 12-14” rosy-purple flowers 

 

1 tuber $9.95 

 2 or more $8.50  each


PLANTING

Plant in full sun. Plant outdoors after your last frost date. You can pot up dahlia tubers a few weeks early to bring on earlier blooms. Plant tubers so the crown is at or just below the surface. Plant in rich, well-drained soil. For heavy clay soil amend with sand and compost for better drainage. They are considered a tender perennial and grown as an annual in zone 8 and below. You can simply dig up the tubers in the fall, store for the winter, and replant the following spring.
