Nothing beats dahlias as everblooming bedding plants and cut flowers, and the heavy-flowering ‘Gallery Renoir’ is no exception. This compact, well-branched dahlia has bushy green foliage, and produces 5-inch (13 cm), formal decorative flowers. The petals are deep rosy pink but slowly fade to medium pink, especially at the outer reaches of the flower head. Initially bred for potted plant culture, this hybrid was developed in The Netherlands in 1992.
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 continued and heavier 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 (after the rainy season) for continuous winter color. Dahlias are cold sensitive and their tuberous roots should be lifted and overwintered indoors in a cool dry location, where not hardy. They are unsurpassed as bedding or small container plants, and make nice cutflowers.
