Single Petal Pink Dahlia Flower

The dahlia is the official flower of the city of Seattle. Dahlias bring life and beauty back to your landscape in late summer and into the fall months.The diversity of the Dahlia allow you to use them in many different aspects of your landscape design,from low growing border plants to stately background plantings that may reach six feet in height!

Dahlia plants grow and bloom best in full sun. Dahlias tolerate most soil types, but prefer a sandy,well drained, slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.2- 6.5. If your soil is heavy or clay, adding sand and peat moss will help to lighten it. Water established Dahlias thoroughly and deeply once a week. Water more frequently if it’s very hot.
