Cambridge Dinnerplate Dahlia
Dinner Plate Dahlia ‘Cambridge’ has 8-10 inch double yellow flowers stippled and streaked with red, resembling a giant, sunny bloom spun through with red paint. This plant grows to a stately 36-40 inches, making it a great choice for mid-summer color where height is desired. Plant tubers in the spring in compost enriched garden soil once the soil has warmed. Dahlias need full sun (at least 6 hours/day). Enjoy flowers from mid-summer through fall. Great as cut flowers, pollinators love them too. Hardy in zones 8-10. Grow as annuals elsewhere.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
