Stunning Dahlias have taken the gardening world by storm, and our Black Forest Cake Dahlia Collection highlights some of the best and brightest combinations to make garden and bouquet design easy. Dahlias are available in a broad range of flower forms, with colors ranging from soft pastels to vivid hues to deep rich shades. 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.
Our Black Forest Cake Dahlia Collection includes 12 bulbs, covering 12 square feet when planted together, including the following items*:
‘Arabian Night’ Decorative Dahlia – Bag of 3 Bulbs
‘Nuit d'Ete’ Cactus Dahlia – Bag of 3 Bulbs
‘Bishop of Llandaff’ Peony Flowering Dahlia – Bag of 3 Bulbs
