Ferncliff Illusion Dinner Plate Dahlia produces sensational pure-white petals tipped in vibrant ultraviolet purple. Fully double blooms emerge packed with petals mid-summer, and last through frost. Sturdy stems hold the massive 8- to 10-inch blooms upright, even after a rain. With a long vase-life, FerncliffIllusion dahlias make stunning cut flowers paired with any color palette, and hummingbirds and butterflies adore the giant blooms. (Dahlia)

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 12-24” wide). Add some striking contract to flower beds and borders with ‘Ferncliff Illusion’ Dinner Plate Dahlia. Perfect for cottage gardens and cutting beds, this dahlia adapts well to any well-drained soil. Pinch back young plants to produce dense growth and bigger blooms. Dahlias bloom best in full sun, though plants benefit from light afternoon shade in hot climates. ‘Ferncliff Illusion’ responds to deadheading and harvesting by producing more blooms – so cut away! Gardeners in winter hardiness zones 7 and below will want to dig dahlia tubers before the first frost and store them in moist sand in a cool, dark place during the winter months. Return tubers to the garden in spring after  the threat of frost has passed.
