With "Dinner Plate" Dahlias, you can choose the kind of blooms you want! For large blue-ribbon winners, trim off side shoots so only a few main stems grow. For lots of flowers, trim tops of main shoots to encourage branching.
Kelvin Floodlight has large yellow blooms and is also available in the "Dinner Plate" Collection or the Blue Ribbon Special.
Planting guides: Plant 10-12" apart after danger of frost is past. In colder winter areas, need to lift bulbs before ground freezes. Dig after frost kills the foliage. Cut the stalk approximately 6" above the tuber. Allow tubers to dry thoroughly. Pack them carefully in dry sand, peat moss, or sawdust and store in a cool (40-45 degree) dry place. Treat as an annual zones 3 - 7, perennial zones 8 - 10.
