Blooming in sunset hues of golden yellow and glowing pink, 'October Sky' Decorative Dahlia is sure to turn eyes and warm hearts. The large, 4-to-5 foot tall plants are standouts in the garden and the long stems make the flowers exceptional in bouquets. 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.
