Bicolor blooms of pink and white grace plants that grow just 12in tall, the perfect size for containers. This variety excelled in trials across the nation, going steadily about its business of producing glorious, 6in blossoms all season long.
These hybrids of species native from Mexico to Colombia hold their display in reserve for mid- to late summer and early fall, when most gardens and most vases are looking a little tired. Planted in 3s and 6s, Dahlias serve to fill holes that develop in the perennial border and make excellent potted plants (1 tuber in a 12in pot). They prefer full sun, though partial shade is acceptable, and they like rich soil and even moisture. Dahlias are perennial in Zones 8-10. Where they are not hardy, Dahlias are easily overwintered indoors.
