(36-48" tall) The enchanting purple blooms of 'Genova' Ball Dahlia can range from ethereal pale lavender to a warmer pinky plum. Vigorous plants produce an abundance of the distinctive, 2-4" diameter flowers on tall, sturdy stems, making them a standout in the garden. Like other Ball Dahlias, these have a long vase life, making them a must-have in bouquets — and because the flowers are slightly smaller than other ball varieties, they are especially suited to mixed bouquets, where they won't overpower other summer blooms. These beauties thrive in containers; a pair of planters near a sunny entryway offers a warm welcome to visitors. Plant tubers 1-2" deep in well-drained soil. You can get a head start by planting them in pots indoors in early spring. Keep soil moist and look forward to blooms from mid-summer until frost. Although grown as an annual in zones 3-7, you can dig up the tubers at the end of the season, store them indoors, and replant in spring, making Dahlias a wise investment.
