Myrtle's Folly Giant Dinnerplate Dahlia

Details

Oh my! These blooms will stop you in your tracks. Not only are they huge, measuring up to 8" across, but they look like a big, plump puff ball in a blaze of colour. How can you pass these ones up?

Are you looking for huge flowers? If so, then these extra large versions of the Decorative Dahlia are definitely the right choice. With flower heads the size of dinner plates (9-11 in, 23-28 cm) they’re certainly a feast for the eyes! Originating from Mexico and Guatemala, these were the flowers of Inca kings and despite their royal origins Dahlias are amongst the easiest plants to grow in the garden. They are a wonderful source of cut flowers and will provide a veritable cornucopia of colourful blooms for your bouquets from mid summer until the first frost. Hardy as they are, Dahlias are susceptible to cold so be careful not to plant them too early and be sure to dig them up and store them in a frost-free place before old Jack Frost comes calling!
