'Blue Bayou®' Anemone Dahlia sits firmly in the class of dahlias known as the "powder puffs." With an outer row of large, lavender-blue petals surrounding a darker, central cushion of shorter petals, it's easy to see why that is. The heavenly blooms of 'Blue Bayou' are sure to have you smiling every time you step into the garden. (Dahlia)

Plant Information

40" tall x 24" wide. There's no stopping the perpetual blooms of this flirty dahlia! In constant flower from mid summer till frost, 'Blue Bayou®' produces dozens of 4-inch-wide blooms on deer-resistant foliage. Plants are easily kept to a shorter stature by pinching out the growing points early in the season. Butterflies and bees adore 'Blue Bayou'. Plus, the blooms also make exceptional cut flowers. Powder puff dahlias (also called anemone dahlias) prefer full-sun conditions and average garden soil that's both well draining and mildly acidic. If voles and mice have feasted on your dahlia tubers in the past, surround them with an inch-thick layer of crushed oyster shells at planting time to deter any nibbling rodents, or grow your dahlias in containers.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
