Growing Tip:

Dahlia flowers are prolific bloomers, producing many flowers throughout their sea­son. Unlike most tuberous and bulb flowers, which give only a one-time show and rest until the next year, dahlias continue to bloom later than most flowers and offer a splash of color in the garden into fall. Butthey are very frost sensitive, so dig up the tubers just before the first frost and store until the next year for replanting.
