Dahlia Antique Copper is part of the Ball Series, bred for their use as cut flowers. The peach and mahogany blooms make exceptionally nice cut flowers, complementing each other nicely in bouquets. They would fetch a premium price wrapped in craft paper on the farm market table. Plus Dahlias are self-propagating, developing ever larger tubers with each passing season. These can be lifted and divided in the fall, stored over winter, and planted again the following spring. Our bulbs ship in March while supplies last, so order early.
Package contains 3 tubers.
Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
