Plant Common Name

Dahlia, Karma Bon Bini Dahlia, Small Cactus Dahlia

General Description

The flaming flowers of 'Karma Bon Bini' are large and cactus-form with yellow bases and electric orange-red petals tips. This cultivar has a tall, robust habit and long, strong stems ideal for cutting.

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.

Tall, large-flowered dahlias are unsurpassed for cutting, but the heads are heavy and can take a real beating in heavy rain and high wind. It’s best to stake them to support both the plants and blooms.
