No longer available this season.
Fun, versatile, and in no need of staking, ‘Twyning’s Smartie’ Dahlia is a bi-colored single Dahlia that will delight you from summer until first frost with gorgeous blooms. Cupped petals surround a daisy-like yellow center, playfully alternating between magenta, bright white, and the occasional brushstrokes of both colors. Blooms break differently – no two are exactly the same! With deep green foliage and a relatively compact form, there is room for these smart flowers in any garden. Single Dahlias make it easy for pollinators to find a meal, and make for attractive cut flowers.

(28-32”tall x 18-20” wide) If you don’t feel like staking, but love the way Dahlia blooms energize the late season garden, try the single blooms of compact ‘Twyning’s Smartie’ Dahlia for all the color and less of the maintenance. While all dahlias benefit from deadheading regularly throughout the season, ‘Twyning’s Smartie’ asks for little else, bringing an abundance of unusual blooms to the border and a great overall habit. Plant the tubers of ‘Twyning’s Smartie’ Dahlia in rich but well-draining soils. Full sun is preferred, but Dahlias can tolerate partial sun and will simply bloom with less flowers. Although grown as an annual in zones 3-7, you can dig up the tubers at the end of the season, store them indoors, and replant in spring, making Dahlias a wise investment. After your last frost, replant ‘Twyning’s Smartie’ Dahlia for another wonderful season of unusual blooms!
