With our Tried & True Dinnerplate Dahlia Collection, three of the classics are yours for a color-filled summer. Dinnerplate Dahlia ‘Thomas Edison’ flowers with almost electric purple double blooms, ‘Kelvin Floodlight’ Dahlia lights up the garden with bright clear yellow flowers and ‘Babylon Red’ Dahlia shines with fire engine red blossoms. All are tall plants that like full sun to perform their best. Plant them along a wall or be prepared to stake them if their flowers need support. Fantastic cut flowers, the more you cut them, the more they bloom. Butterflies and hummingbirds love them too. Dahlias are some of the easiest and most rewarding flowers to grow, and we make it easy to get started with this fabulous trio. Collection of three varieties, 9 bulbs (tubers) total.
