Vibrant red adds zip to containers and the front of late summer borders, providing a sharp contrast or smooth blend with nearby hues. Partner these 5-6" flowers with rosy red Calibrachoas and yellow-green Helichrysum for a dramatic display.
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 and make excellent potted plants (1 tuber in a 12" pot). 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 (click on Growing Guide).
