Motto Dahlia

A sun-kissed dahlia in giant size
Have you tried dinnerplate dahlias? These huge flowers on sturdy stalks look too fantastic to be real! A sun-kissed orange dahlia with flowers up to 10" across, Motto is a great introduction to growing dinnerplates. Simply plant in the spring in a sunny location, and keep your dahlias watered and cared for over the growing season. You'll be rewarded when bright apricot blooms, sprout on sturdy, three-foot tall stems. Cut a few of your Motto Dahlias to create a whimsical bouquet, or simply enjoy them in a group planting. Deadheading will encourage your dahlias to bloom longer throughout the summer.
