A perfect accent to the colors of the mid-to-late summer garden, Rip City Dahlia’s wavy petals of red to dark maroon will provide plentiful garden color and elegant blossoms for your home. At 3-4' tall, Rip City is an easy addition to a perennial bed where its dark red flowers highlight other late summer blooms, such as echinacea and aster. Plant it with other dahlias for a dancing display of color in the garden or the vase! Deadhead spent flowers to keep more coming. Plant tubers in a sunny spot (light shade okay in the South), with good drainage, at a depth of 3-4inches. Water lightly until the plant has sprouted, thereafter keep moisture consistent. If long stems are desired, pinch back growth once the plant reaches 12 inches. In zones cooler than zone 7, treat as an annual, or dig the tubers before the first frost to replant in spring. (3-4' tall x 18" wide)
