(36-48” tall – 24” wide) If you’re looking for multi-colored hues in your dinner plate dahlias, Akita Dahlia is a terrific choice. The 10” decorative blooms are primarily a deep red-raspberry tipped with white, but they open to hints of orange within. The colors continue to morph as the blossom ages and as new buds open--the result is a rainbow of color on one plant. Blooms are held above deep-green foliage with a good mid-size habit, which makes it ideal for middle-of-the-border installations. Don’t let Akita Dahlia dry out, but don’t let it sit with wet feet either. The perfect combination is a full sun location in humusy, moisture-retentive soil that drains well. Protection from high winds is a good idea with dahlias. Plant the tubers in sharp grit if you have vole issues in your garden. A great cut flower, Akita Dahlia tubers should be lifted and stored in a dry, cool, frost-free area in zones cooler than 8.
