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 Nicholas Dahlia is a real stunner, huge 6" blooms are a gorgeous coral color, with a little peach mixed in. The waterlily shape of the bloom makes it look a little funky.

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 8-10 Dahlia will survive the Winter, but in most of the country it is an annual. You can dig up and store the tuber in order to re-plant it the following Spring, however.

Ships: as a plant in a 4.5" diameter pot, in the Spring. You can buy it as tuber instead here.

Ships as a plant in a 4.5" diameter pot, in late Spring.

Growth habit: Tall and branching plant, with one multiple blooms per stalk. Space about 12" apart.

Size when mature: 4'

Growing specifics: Sensitive to frost, plant outside after your the ground has warmed in the late Spring.

Pinch: When the plant is about 12" tall you can 'pinch it' which is to pinch of the main middle bud so that the plant is encouraged to be bushier and more full of blooms as it matures.
