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).

Plant Information
(36-48" tall x 24” wide) The twisted, multi-hued petals of Myrtle’s Folly Dahlia are sure to mesmerize visitors to your garden. It holds its pom-pom-esque blooms strongly on 4 ft. stems, allowing it to mingle in the mid-border and make a statement at the same time. Grow this cheerleader in a full sun site with protection from high winds or stake lightly in more exposed locations. Like all dahlias, too much moisture can rot out the tubers, so a moisture retentive soil that drains well is preferred. Myrtle’s Folly Dahlia can benefit from light pinching at the growing points early in the season. Later in summer as the flowers fade, you’ll be rewarded for diligently deadheading with more blossoms for vase and garden. For gardeners living in cooler climates (Zone 8 and colder), the vigorous tubers can be lifted and stored in a cool, frost-free location over the winter for even more blooms next year. A truly glorious cultivar.
