Many of you are peony lovers and already know and grow dahlias for the summer garden. If you don't know these extravagant flowers, they are easy to grow and bloom. We have grown them in the same flower bed with herbaceous peonies. In Connecticut, peonies bloom in May/June and dahlias start in mid-July and go until the October frost. So there is an extended bloom period for your garden and lot of enjoyment in growing dahlias.
We've got a new collection of dahlias, some old classic favorites, and others in fun and exciting colors. Each dahlia in our collection has specific details regarding the flower form, flower size, plant height at maturity, and spacing. Dahlias bloom from mid-summer to the frost.
All dahlias need full sun, but will grow in a little part shade. These are tropical, sun-loving plants. In one summer season they will grow and give bountiful blooms. Plant in well-drained, fertile soil. Stake the tall varieties at planting time for best results.
One of the exciting things about dahlias is you can be rewarded with blooms in about 80-100 days from planting the tuber.
Our dahlias are pollinator friendly and grown in a sustainable manner without the use of neonicitinoids.
Dahlias grow in USDA zones 3-10, and are hardy to zone 8. Gardeners in colder climates need to dig the tubers after the frost or treat as an annual. Detailed growing instructions included with your order.
