Gorgeous light pink and cream coloured dinner plate dahlia, popular among florists and brides. Large dinner plate sized blooms, grow best in a greenhouse or tunnel. Require insect bags to prevent bug damage. A must have addition to a cut-flower farm! Not recommended for a home garden as they need more attention than most dahlias.

Light Preference: Full Sun

Height: 3-4'

Plant Spacing: 18-24"

Hardiness Zone: Annual in Canada

Harvest: When blooms are fully open.

Type: Dinner Plate Dahlia

Plant in full sun after last frost. Plant tuber about 4-6" deep.

Tubers multiply by around +-8 every year. When dahlias die back in the fall, cut back stems to a few inches above the soil. Stick shovel or pitchfork in soil around the tuber being careful not to stab the clump, then gently pull up tuber clump. Store the dahlia tubers in pure peat over the winter in a cool space that remains at a consistent 10 degrees celsius. You can divide tuber clumps to multiply your stock in the fall once you have dug them out, or wait until the spring after storing the clump all winter in peat. The "eyes" are easier to see in the spring once they begin to sprout. We recommend following a dahlia tuber dividing video for your first time (Floret Flower Farm is a great resource).


Please Note:

- All dahlia tubers will start to ship out in Mid-April. We can only ship dahlia tubers when there is no risk of freezing. 

- All dahlia tubers are sold as individual tubers with at least one growth eye. 

- Unfortunately, we can not combine orders after they are placed. 

Thank you for your understanding
