Boasting abundant blooms in elegant shades of rosy pink, 'Bacardi' Decorative Dahlia lends a sophisticated touch to mixed plantings, where it is a charming complement to other Dahlias and perennials. Dahlias are perennial in zones 8-10, but in cooler zones, tubers can be dug after frost comes, stored over winter, then re-planted the following spring. Grow Dahlias in a sunny spot, in average soil that drains well. Keep moisture consistent once it begins to grow and enjoy a non-stop color parade. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowers and pinch off small side buds to encourage larger flowers if desired.
