Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAHLIA( DAHLIETTA™ SERIES)
Dahlia, Dahlietta® Series Dahlias, Decorative Dahlia
The hybrid cultivars in the Dahlietta™ Series are heavy-flowering and come in an array of colors, including bicolors. The blooms may be double, semi-double and some have a collarette form. The plants are dwarf and neatly mounded. These free-blooming dahlias were introduced by the Ball Horticultural Company.
These warm season herbaceous tender perennials grow 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 heavier flowering.
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 for continuous winter color. Dahlias are cold sensitive and their tuberous roots should be lifted and overwintered in a cool dry location, where not hardy.
This exceptional dahlia series is ideal for use in both containers and beds. The flowers are excellent for cutting.
