NEW! Dahlia Lilac Time (Spring Delivery)
Spring Delivery! We begin shipping in mid-March, which is the perfect time for planting for most zones. Dahlias can be planted up to mid-June in most regions and will continue to bloom until the first frost!
Lilac Time is considered a large decorative dahlia. It is a sport (mutation, if you will) of Thomas Edison. This dahlia produces beautiful lavender blooms that can reach up to 8" across.
Contains 2 dahlia tubers
How to Plant
Space about 2-3' apart.
As the stem emerges cover with soil again. This second covering encourages a strong stem, which will help support the heavy dahlia blooms.
Where to Plant
The more sun your dahlias receive, the bigger the flowers will be. Dahlias need about six hours of direct sun a day to thrive.
A well-drained location is absolutely critical for healthy dahlias. Make sure your dahlia roots never sit in soggy soil.
If possible, select a location that offers some protection from wind and heavy rains.
When to Plant
Additional Care Instructions
Dahlias will continue to bloom until the first frost. A hard frost will kill the plant, so it is advisable to harvest tubers before that happens. Store harvested tubers in a cool, dry location overwinter and plant in the spring.
