Plant Information

Firepot gives you some of the brightest blooms in the garden. A great new hybrid.

Why Gardeners love Dahlias (See combination photo below.) Dahlias are one of the most rewarding summer flowers of all. They're really easy to grow with spectacular results. If you know them, you know all about it. If you don't, here is the information you need. Prepare to become 'hooked.'

First of all, Dahlias are great for cutting, as you can see in the large top photo of an arrangement showing a lavish deep red dahlia right next to a large, voluptuous rose.

Dahlias are native to Mexico, but there's about as much resemblance between the original and the Dutch hybrids as there is between an old toy car and a brand new Mercedes. Dahlias for today's gardeners offer a really big gardening treat.

The 'bulbs' are actually tubers, and look a lot like peony roots--sort of like a bunch of carrots. The plants grow quickly and some grow quite tall, always with lush deep green foliage.

Types of Dahlias. These plants have been hybridized into various heights from short bedding plants to tall bushy ones. But they are officially categorized by flower type or shape. The term, 'Dinnerplate Dahlia' is probably the most famous description, and though all gardeners use the term, it is not an official classification. 'Dinnerplates' are, simply put, the large plants with the huge flowers. The always-double flowers are up to 8", sometimes a whopping 10" across, so the name makes sense.

Dahlia DetailsPhotos A and C are examples of Dinnerplate Dahlias. As you can see, they come in both solids and bi-colors.
Photo B
shows a whole border of tall dahlias in the garden.

Here are the official classifications:

'Decorative Dahlias' This group includes the Dinnerplates and also other taller (to 4 ft.) plants with double, chrysanthemum-like flowers. The famous 'Shogun Dahlias' are as tall as Decoratives, but have very heavy bloom of smaller bi-colored flowers for gardeners who want a large bushy plant covered with color.

'Cactus Dahlias' are the ones with the cactus-like blooms, often in super-bright bi-colors, always with the rolled, pointed petals. Like other groups, Cactus Dahlias can be of various heights, as long as they have 'cactus' flowers.

'Gallery Dahlias' are a newer group of shorter plants with flower-types of the Decoratives and Cactus groups. The Gallery group is named with terms from the art world including famous artists' names.

'Butterfly' or 'Impression Dahlias' are what the Dutch call 'bedding dahlias. They stay short, and are perfect for pots or borders. The names in this group all begin with 'F' like 'Futuro' and 'Fantastico'. The flowers are wide-open and daisy-like for a really colorful display of their brilliant hues. If well cared-for, watered, and dead-headed, they bloom constantly all season, making great masses of color.

There are other groups such as 'Ball Dahlias' and 'Pom Pom Dahlias' with spherical blooms, 'Colarette Dahlias' with uneven rows of petals creating a 'collar' effect--the varieties go on and on. Growing all of them is essentially the same, and best of all, it's easy.

Growing Dahlias: All the gardener needs to do is plant the tubers after spring frosts in good garden soil with full sun. It's best to position them against a wall or be ready to stake them, since they are brittle, and must be protected from high winds. (If you've grown perennial Delphiniums, the plant size and growth is similar, but success with Dahlias is much easier.) Keep them free of bugs, well-watered, and well-fertilized as they grow, and your dahlias will begin to set buds by midsummer and be in full bloom, usually during July or August. Then the huge flowers keep coming until frost.

When frost threatens, just pull the roots up, cut off the stems, and store the tubers until the following spring. Each fall, you'll be amazed how the 'bulbs' have multiplied during the summer, giving you more and more to divide and enjoy the next year.

One expert has said, 'Never have so many gardeners received so much for so little work, as when they grow dahlias.''

I am just getting some blooms so it's been a little frustrating at the end of August. I did plant a little late this year (end of June) but my other dahlias are blooming quite well. I'm sure I'll love them when they bloom more but it's a little hard to say at this point.

    This is a fabulous dahlia. Gorgeous hot pink with yellow centers, the blooms are large for semi-dinner plate. And the bloom time is long, beginning in early September and now in late October still going strong.

                  This firepot dahlia is just as gorgeous as advertised. The colors are even more intense and beautiful than in the sample photo. The dahlia plant itself is a little smaller than I expected, but I have multiple blooms and buds on each of the three plants I ordered. What a dramatic and gorgeous show!

                  I planted these next to a breakfast patio. They are a really cheerful, uplifting color combination! I put all the bulbs near each other to maximize the color pop - they created their own little party of fun! However, the spot is only part sun, so my plants were about 2' high, and the blooms were not as big as I thought. In the end, there were so many blooms, I was still really happy with them overall. I may move them to a sunnier spot next year.

                            Slighty unique from many Dahlias which was fun and interesting. Bold bright color and easy to grow. I was expecting something bigger in size.

                                    Have 3 in a planter by my back stairs. Lovely. Put 3 in the bed where the poppies die back early and they continue the bloom the rest of the season.

                                            Planted these in a hurry as I was just about to leave for two weeks. Came back and forgot about them. They put on a beautiful show all summer. The color is astonishing. Had never grown dahlias before due to the fact they must be dug up, I only plant what stays where it is, but these have done really well.

                                                I ordered 6 plants and planted 3 in a side garden and 3 in the back flower bed. The Weed Whip Guy, that is what I call the man who takes care of the yard of the place I rent, slashed the three in the side yard to the ground. I was surprised, a blind person could see that these were flowers and not weeds. The three in the back I protected with phone calls, sticky notes on the fence and voice mail instructions. These are beautiful, and I am so glad I ordered them from American Meadows. You will enjoy the color they bring to the garden. Now to keep the Weed Whip Guy at bay.

                                                    I planted this bulbs as soon as I received them. They are easy to plant but must be kept moist.

                                                    The color of these Dahlias are a deep Burgundy color and look nothing like the Dahlia colors in the picture. If I could I would upload a picture. Beautiful in the picture - just so - so when blooms open up after being planted.

                                                    I probably will not take the time to pull them up in Oct since they are not the color that I was looking for.

                                                    Fire Pot an incredible flower of soft opaque oranges and pinks, flamed on the outside of the petals It's the complex flushes of subdued colors that makes this Dahlia so extraordinary.

                                                    I live in Haines Alaska all dahlias are started inside my greenhouse about the end of April. The tubular's where as large as my hand and I received them packaged perfectly. All my dahlias are planted in large containers and I keep a close watch on them as you bloom as you want the stocks to be sturdy and able to hold the flowers upright and bring them out when they are just about ready to bloom. I fertilize regularly they are one of the hardest flowers that grow in my garden. Soon I will be drying soil in containers and putting the tubular's away for the winter.

                                                    Dahlias are the delight of the small village where I live folk's walk by my house and may observe water lily Dahlia Fire Pot along with five other types. I took Ms Fire Pot to our local fair and she was a Best of Class winner. Friend's men and women comment about seeing the most magnificent dahlia ever at the fair.

                                                    Although I had to water these a lot, they were worth it. I planted them along my back walkway and once they started blooming, the show has been non-stop. On a grey day (which intensifies color) or when the sun is shining on them just right, they literally GLOW. Gorgeous!

                                                      Fire Pot is rapidly becoming one of my favorite dalias. Of the six I planted, all grew and produced tons of wonderful flowers. Even the two that went in the ground late in July bloomed heavily until a snowfall in mid November. If not for that snow, they would likely have kept blooming into the new year!

                                                      If you plant these, be prepared to have friends and strangers stop and comment on your beautiful dalias. Fortunately, they bloom so heavily, it is easy to send them on their away with their own boquets of flowers.

                                                      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).
