The word dahlia means "plant with tube- like stems”. With a blast of different colors, shapes and sizes, Dahlias bring life and beauty back to your landscape in late summer and into the fall months. The diversity of Dahlias allow you to use them in many different aspects of your landscape design, from low growing border plants to stately background plantings which may reach six feet in height. Dahlias make excellent cut flowers, which typically last about a week in the house.
This pink confection was a hit worldwide as soon as it was seen. So why shouldn't Otto (who must be the hybridizer) be thrilled. These dahlias can light up a whole garden with huge pink flowers--a true spectacle. And imagine them in a vase!
