‘Fairway Spur’ Dahlia knocks it out of the ballpark with rosy apricot petals that dance in the summer sun. These elegant “dinnerplate” blossoms up to 10” wide will make your summer garden glow, and enhance any garden color scheme, all the way to fall. Plentiful blooms make great cut flowers, so be sure to plant plenty for irresistible bouquets!
Like a summer sunset, the peachy-mango petals of Fairway
Spur Dahlia lend romantic elegance to the summer garden. Blooming with dinner
plate-sized 8-10" flowers from mid-to-late summer until frost, Fairway
Spur provides plentiful flowers for home and garden. Plant the tubers when the
soil has warmed, 4-6" deep in compost enriched garden soil in a sunny spot
(afternoon shade in the South). Once the plant sprouts, water deeply and keep
the soil moist as the dahlia grows. For long stemmed flowers, cut the plant
back once when it reaches 12" tall. Stakes are helpful with
these tall plants, especially in windy areas, so plant your stakes as you plant
the dahlias to avoid damaging the plant. Plant with other late summer bloomers
such as helianthus, veronica or tall salvia for a dramatic effect. Bees love
them and you will too! (4' tall x 18" wide)

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many
of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration. Read our article about How To Grow Dahlias.
Growing Dahlias: Plant Dahlia tubers after spring frosts in good garden soil with full sun. Dahlias must be protected from high winds, so we suggest you position them against a wall or be ready to stake them. Keep the plants well-watered and free of bugs, applying flower fertilizer as they grow. Your dahlias will be in full bloom by July or August, with the enormous flowers continuing to bloom until frost. As frost threatens, pull up the roots and trim off the stems. You can store the tubers in a cool dry place until the following spring.
