36" tall x 24" wide. Francophiles already know that 'Nuit d'Ete' translates to "summer night," but even non-Francophiles certainly won't be lost in translation when it comes to this extraordinary dahlia. Deep, dark, and decadent, gardeners looking to add a contemporary flair to their dahlia collection need to include this beauty in their plans. As attention-grabbing in the vase as it is in the garden, 'Nuit d'Ete' thrives in sunny areas with minimal care. Frequent deadheading encourages the production of more blooms, and the medium green foliage is typically pest and disease free. Like other dahlias, the tubers of 'Nuit d'Ete' are easily lifted before fall's first frost and stored in a box of peat moss in a cool, dry garage or basement. C'est beau!
