Included in the novelty Dahlias category, Poodle Skirt is considered to be an Anemone Dahlia because of its large, 8cm (3") wide, Anemone-like blooms. These appear in mid- to late summer atop stems that can reach 90cm (36") tall. They make excellent cut flowers, and they'll grow in larger containers. Grow in full sun and lift the tubers in the fall to store in a frost free place over winter.
One tuber per package.
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.
