Plant Finder: about the Dahlia genus

Description

Dahlia genus. This genus has upright and bushy, early summer and early autumn flowering, tuberous, deciduous annuals and perennials. They bear pinnatifid or pinnatisect, mid green leaves and disc-shaped flowers.

Cultivation

They are half hardy to hardy and will need a sunny position with well drained soil. In frost-free areas, the plants may be left in the ground as normal herbaceous perennials, but they will benefit from regular propagation to maintain vigour. After flowering in areas with frost, lift tubers and store in a frost-free place; replant once all frost danger has passed.

Interest and use

Grown as bedding plants or for their flower heads, which are good for cutting or exhibition. Suitable for coastal conditions.
