The decorative, semi-double to double (extra petal) blooms of Delicious™ Marmalade are a warm medium orange to red-orange. Once flowers open their widest, you can spot the central disk of yellow stamens. They appear on dwarf, upright bushy plants with medium green foliage. This free-blooming dahlia was introduced by the Ball Horticultural Company, the result of controlled breeding efforts in 2003 in The Netherlands.
This warm season herbaceous tender perennial grows from bulbous underground tubers and have rich green compound leaves with toothed margins. The colorful flowers appear continuously and are attractive to bees and butterflies. Remove the old buds from spent flowers to encourage continued flowering up until frost.
Dahlias prefer well-drained, fertile soil and full to partial sun. Ideally, night temperatures should be comfortably cool, and days should lack overbearing humidity. Most hybrids are propagated from divisions or root cuttings to preserve their unique characteristics. In colder regions, plant starts after the danger of frost has passed. In frost-free zones, they can be planted in fall (the end of the summer rainy season) for continuous winter color. Dahlias are cold sensitive and their tuberous roots should be lifted and overwintered in a cool, dry location indoors where not hardy.
This exceptional dahlia is ideal for containers and beds.
