Inspired by a fabulous year for Dahlias in Holland, this medley includes varieties of different shapes and sizes in the color range shown here -- from coral through deep rosy pink to pastels. Available in bags of 6 and 12 tubers of different varieties. Not labeled.
These hybrids of species native from Mexico to Colombia hold their display in reserve for mid- to late summer and early fall, when most gardens and most vases are looking a little tired. Planted in 3s and 6s, Dahlias serve to fill holes that develop in the perennial border. They prefer full sun, though partial shade is acceptable, and they like rich soil and even moisture. Dahlias are perennial in Zones 8-10. Where they are not hardy, Dahlias are easily overwintered indoors. For more information, click on Growing Guide.
