Information about Dahlias


Type: Perennial

Although dahlias are native to Mexico and Central America, they can now be found all over Europe and North America.

They feature large, colorful blooms, available in pink, white, red, orange, bronze, lavender, flame, variegated, and bicolor varieties.

Dahlia plants can grow up to five feet tall and provide a seemingly endless supply of colorful blossoms. Removing the smaller buds forces the remaining ones to grow to amazing sizes.

Dahlias do best in rich, slightly acidic soil that is well-drained. A raised flower bed consisting of mulch and compost provides an ideal growing environment.

For best results, plant your dahlias where they will receive at least 1/2 day of full sunshine daily. To prevent the red varieties of dahlias from fading in the sun, limit their exposure to a couple of hours each afternoon. Water frequently.
