Layer upon layer of lavender petals form the enchanting blooms of 'Genova' Ball Dahlias, with each petal dipped in dark plum. Colors can range from nearly white to more saturated purple tones. Like other Ball Dahlias, they stand up to wind and rain, bringing cheer no matter the weather. Deer-resistant, irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds, they're long-lasting in bouquets, too.

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) 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.
