'Bohemian Spartacus' Dahlia truly lives up to its unusual name! A sport of the popular red dinner plate dahlia, ‘Spartacus,’ its fun, wavy petals sweep backwards and are flecked with yellow just like a flowing bohemian skirt. 'Bohemian Spartacus' Dahlia makes a great cut flower as the stems are tall and strong.

Dahlias are perennial in zones 8-10, but in cooler zones, tubers can be dug after frost comes, stored over winter, then re-planted the following spring. Grow Dahlias in a sunny spot, in average soil that drains well. Keep moisture consistent once it begins to grow and enjoy a non-stop color parade. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowers and pinch off small side buds to encourage larger flowers if desired.
