DAHLIA 'Gallery Matisse'( GALLERY SERIES) PP16798
Dahlia, Decorative Dahlia, Gallery Matisse Dahlia
The compact ‘Gallery Matisse’ produces many beautiful, bright orange-red flowers. Its robust formal decorative blossoms appear on tidy, well-branched plants continuously as long as growing conditions remain favorable.
This warm season herbaceous tender perennial grows from bulbous underground tubers and has a bushy habit. Its lush compound leaves are rich green 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. They are unsurpassed as bedding or small container plants, and make nice cutflowers.
