(28-32" tall x 12-24” wide) Enjoy months of color with ‘Tyler James’ Dinner Plate Dahlia. They are remarkable easy to grow and respond to harvest by yielding even more blooms. And cut flowers have a long vase life. For best blooming, plant in full sun. Plants benefit from light afternoon shade in hot climates. Plant one bulb per square foot, setting tubers one to two inches deep in any well-drained soil. For fuller plants and bigger blooms, pinch back young plants, removing growth beyond the third set of leaves. Dahlia are not winter hardy beyond zone 8. In colder regions, dig tubers in fall before the first frost. After drying tubers for several days, remove excess soil and store in a box filled with lightly moistened sand or peat moss. Store in a cool, dry location until replanting in spring.
