Annual plant, a height of 60-80 cm. The flowers are collected in large terry floretses-basket, various colors. The petals are rolled up in a thin tube along the entire length. The diameter of the inflorescence is from 7 to 35 centimeters. Flowers are abundant and long, very decorative in flowerbeds, slaves and large flower massifs. Require sunny, protected from cold and strong winds places with good air circulation. Should not be planted on low and marshy areas. They are afraid of even slight frosts. Blossom in 80 days after the emergence of seedlings.
Planting Dahlia tubers can be planted 10cm deep in fertile well drained soil, outdoors in spring when the frost has disappeared. If you plant before the frosts are over, they may get frosted and die, so pot in March or early April for flowering in early July. They prefer to be in a sunny location and spaced at approximately 45cm apart.
Tips: Dahlias start blooming about 8 weeks after planting, starting in mid-July. Some gardeners start tubers indoors in containers a month ahead to get a jump on the season.
