Otto is not the only one thrilled with this dahlia; we're pretty impressed, too. Huge, 10-12" blossoms in a shade of pink that looks almost edible (think a tropical fruit dessert) are carried on sturdy 3.5 - 4 foot plants. It's hard to believe that a tuber, even the large ones we ship, can grow fast enough in a single season to produce flowers this big and this numerous, but the proof is in the garden. Deer resistant, gorgeous pink blooms with a smidgens of warming peach, are produced from late July through frost. Your neighbors will marvel at these dahlias, as will you.
Plant tubers 3-4" deep
Once sprouted, these plants need about 1" of rain/irrigation per week.
