Bareroot Tuber from DeGroot
These Giant Dahlias are tender perennials that are vigorous and fast-growing. Outstanding addition to the flower border or container garden. An old fashioned favorite and superb cut flower. Flowers bloom first-year and add a lovely spot of color in the late summer garden. Heat resistant. Dahlias will bloom from mid-summer until frost. They are a welcome addition to the garden late in the season when other flowers are fading and are long-lasting cut flowers.
Planting instructions: Plant Dahlias in well-drained soil in a sunny location. Supply ample moisture and fertilizer during the growing season. When the plant reaches 1-1/2′ in height, trim the entire plant to 1′. In about two weeks trim the plant again back to about 1-1/2′. This will encourage your Dahlia to produce an abundance of flowers. Remove all spent flowers. These tuberous roots must be lifted from the ground in zones 7 and lower.
