Description

'Babylon Red' is part of the famous Babylon Series, which are some of the classic Dahlias in solid colors. Dinner Plate Dahlias like this are considered the standards by which new dahlias are judged.

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.
