Dandy Collarette Dahlia Seed Pack
These multi-colored, seed-grown dahlias form a conspicuous row of inner petals–somewhat resembling dapper, young gentlemen all dressed up in ruffled collars. Bushy, dwarf habit plants display unapologetically jolly blooms on long, stiff stems that hold up well in floral arrangements. These fine fellows attract beneficial pollinators and bring good cheer to your borders and beds.
-Transplant when seedlings are 3-4" into soil amended with plenty of compost. Plants reach 48" tall. Each plant produces many single petaled flowers.
-Days to germination: 5-10 days. Days to maturity: 70 days from transplant.
Artwork by Deanna Staffo, an avid gardener and artist with interests in portraiture, fashion, lifestyle, and narrative illustration, worked in acrylic and colored pencil to give these double- collared flowers a ride—in tandem with some very dapper dandies.
