Dahlia bulbs are shipped dormant and quickly grow into a 3-4 feet tall (when in bloom) summer-to-fall flowering plant that can spread its leafy, toothy green mound 1-3 feet wide! The lush greenery looks great as filler and backdrop to these bulbs. Deadheading regularly allows you to enjoy bloom after bloom until frost throughout all growing zones. Though these tubers are ground hardy in zones 9-11.
As seasonal annual accents, Dahlia looks wonderful planted among bulb gardens and containers on the front porch. For warm, frost-free growing zones, Use Dahlia as back-of-the-garden specimens! Mix throughout perennial and Rose gardens, create groups in a tired cottage border or courtyard, or wind rows along a border, pathway, or foundation planting that is in need of tropical color.
These space-saving plants are perfect even if you don't have a yard! Plant Dahlia in containers around your pool and patio, or in planters around your front door seating, or on balconies and decks that can use some brilliant color. The pollinators and your vases indoors will be grateful!
Dahlia blooms all summer without fading in full sun to partial sun locations and prefers a wide range of soil types, as long as it is well-drained. Soak the tubers for a few hours before planting and plant them with their fingers spread out gently and pointing downwards. Water well and maintain consistent moisture, adding 3-4 inches of mulch helps considerably.
Dahlia tubers can be dug after frost and stored in all growing zones! Dig up the plants after the first frost to save your tubers for the next year. Let them dry out, and then place in paper bags or boxes in a cool place and sprinkle a little water on the tubers periodically to keep them from drying out. In a frost-free climate, leave the tubers in the ground and trim the stems once they die back.
The tropical color and exotic size of the Aloha Dahlia will transport you to an island getaway in your own backyard. Order your quality tubers today from Nature Hills and we'll ship your order at the proper planting time for your growing zone!
