Dahlias For Cutting 6 tubers, Shade Plants

Dahlias make excellent cut flowers because their stems are long and their blooms last several days in water. To keep your vases full from late summer till fall, we've assembled a cutting garden mix you'll never forget. It contains a range of colors, shapes, and heights. Dahlias aren't hurt by cutting. In fact, the more you cut, the more these prolific plants will grow and bloom. Each mix contains 6 tubers, our choice, not labeled. Dahlias prefer full sun, though par will grow and bloom. Each mix contains 6 tubers, our choice, not labeled. Dahlias prefer full sun, though partial shade is acceptable. They like rich soil and even moisture, which means regular watering in areas with hot, dry summers. Dahlias are perennial in Zones 8–10. Where they are not hardy, Dahlias are easily overwintered indoors.   Please note: Dahlias should be planted outside once the danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has warmed to around 60°F. For gardeners in Zones 7 and colder, you can get a head start by planting your Dahlias in pots indoors. For more information on growing Dahlias, click Growing Guide.
