Dahlia are towering beauties of the Summer garden, coming into bloom around mid-Summer to steal the show with a stunning array of colors and shapes.
The huge 8" blooms on the Vulcan Striped Dahlia are an absolute riot. Sometimes clashing is the right choice, and this flower is so unabashed it just works, with bright yellow petals striped with wild red strokes.
Planting conditions: Not too picky, tolerant of a variety of soil types, and happiest in full sun.
Care: Once they are happy and established in your garden, they are drought-tolerant, but will bloom more with more water.
Blooms: Mid-Late Summer through first frost. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off) to encourage more blooms.
Tender Perennial: In zones 8-11 Dahlias will survive the Winter, Annual in zones 3-7. In zones that get winter freezing, you can dig up and store the Dahlia tubers in order to re-plant it the following Spring.
Ships: as a package of five tubers in the Spring.
