Growing Instructions

Exact care of dahlia flowers may vary dependent upon your zone, but these tips should help you get maximum blooms and healthy bushy plants. Plant in well-drained soil, after danger of frost has passed, where they will get plenty of sunlight. They respond dramatically to feeding, increasing the growth of leaves, flowers and your tuber clump for an even bigger show next season. Water well.

Care Tip

Big dahlias might need a support structure to keep the heavy huge blooms from bending to the ground. Cut flowers only after they are almost fully open to enjoy them in a vase indoors. The more you cut, the more they bloom.
