Lake Michigan Dahlia

Pretty Petals and the Perfect Ratio
We can't help loving Lake Michigan Dahlia, it's just...close to home for Michigan Bulb. But it's not just enticing for its name, the color pattern is gorgeous! It looks like someone painted it with one long stroke from the tip down towards the luminous yellow center. This is a dahlia we like in containers. It stays a little more compact than the landscape dahlias, so there won't be lots of blank space between the pot and the blooms. The flowers reach a good 5" across—big flowers on a compact plant is such a strong ratio. It's a big flower show that will go where big plants don't fit. Lake Michigan's blooms also play well in a mixed bouquet, large enough to draw attention but not so big you can't fit other flowers around it.
