Why Plant Dahlias?

Dahlia bulbs are easy to grow, and quickly return spectacular results. Dahlias make wonderful cutting flowers and are often the center of attention in a floral bouquet. Dahlia 'bulbs' are actually tubers, which grow quickly with lush, deep-green foliage. Dahlia plants are native to Mexico and prefer full sun. They require very little work and deliver striking, gorgeous blooms from mid-summer through frost. Distinctive looking Cactus Dahlias and 'Dinnerplate Dahlias' are among the most popular selections with gardeners. Dinnerplate Dahlias are large plants that deliver huge, double flowers up to 10 inches across. Learn more about growing Dahlias here.
