Few plants can rival the flowering power of a dahlia.
These spring-planted bulbs start blooming in midsummer and continue for months, closing out the growing season with a blaze of color and beauty. No matter what size or type of garden you have, dahlias will claim center stage and put on a sensational show.
Dahlias are available in a dazzling array of colors and shapes, with flower sizes that range from two to ten inches across. There are dahlias suitable for cutting gardens, perennial gardens, landscaping, and containers. It’s no wonder the National Garden Bureau has declared 2019 The Year of the Dahlia.
