Giant Blooms with Rounded Form! Fashionably Late Flowers Until Frost Dahlias are the queens of the late-summer garden, producing showy blooms in a wide variety of colours, forms and sizes. This is great news for gardeners who are always looking for something different to add to their collection. Our Beach Ball Dahlia Collection offers exciting globe-shaped flowers that will "round out" your garden like never before! Like most dahlias, these varieties will thrive in well-drained soil and sun or partial shade. And their bushy habit makes them perfect for filling in gaps or creating a full-coverage privacy hedge. A Pinch Bigger than the Rest For the largest exhibition blooms possible, pinch the side shoots of your dahlias as they grow. This will allow the remaining flowers to receive more of the plant's food and energy. For slightly smaller blooms in higher numbers, leave the side shoots alone. Have a Ball with Big Blooms till Late Fall! We'll ship your dahlias in the spring, at the perfect time for planting in your area. All you need to succeed is a sunny place (at least a half day of full sun) with well-drained soil. Then just keep your dahlias watered if rain doesn't do the job. Your dahlias will thrive and bloom profusely all season long. When frost lingers on the ground, you can lift your dahlia clumps for winter storage. In spring, divide the multiplying tubers for additional plantings, or share them with your envious neighbours and friends! Close out the growing season with prize-worthy dahlias in a variety of playful colours. Our new Beach Ball Dahlia Collection includes five stunning varieties, each capable of producing showpiece-size, 8–10" flowers with petals that bend back toward the stem. This unusual rounded shape makes them even more eye-catching in the garden.
