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)

Add some striking contrast to flower beds and borders with ‘Ferncliff Illusion’ Dinner Plate Dahlia. Perfect for cottage gardens and cutting beds.

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.
