Family: Asteraceae

Location:

This perennial can grow up to 5' tall and produces full, large blooms that can be 10" in diameter for some varieties! Dahlias do well in warm but not hot and humid areas. They tolerate coastal areas. After the danger of frost has passed, plant tubers in full sun with wind protection. Dahlias do best with fertile, well draining, moist, acidic soil. Taller varieties may need to be stalked. Blooms appear in summer and fall. When first frost appears, dahlia foliage may turn black. Tubers may be left in ground in frost-free areas and covered with mulch. Otherwise, they should be dug up.  Information by: PlantMaster
