(36-48" tall x 12-24” wide). Add some striking contract to flower beds and borders with ‘Ferncliff Illusion’ Dinner Plate Dahlia. Perfect for cottage gardens and cutting beds, this dahlia adapts well to any well-drained soil. Pinch back young plants to produce dense growth and bigger blooms. Dahlias bloom best in full sun, though plants benefit from light afternoon shade in hot climates. ‘Ferncliff Illusion’ responds to deadheading and harvesting by producing more blooms – so cut away! Gardeners in winter hardiness zones 7 and below will want to dig dahlia tubers before the first frost and store them in moist sand in a cool, dark place during the winter months. Return tubers to the garden in spring after the threat of frost has passed.
