Dandy Collarette Dahlia

Dahlia variabilis

Vigorous and showy low-growing plants.

These multi-colored, seed-grown dahlias form a conspicuous row of inner petals somewhat resembling dapper, young gentlemen all dressed up in ruffled collars. Bushy, dwarf habit plants display unapologetically jolly blooms on long, stiff stems that hold up well in floral arrangements. These fine fellows attract beneficial pollinators and bring good cheer to your borders and beds.

When the growing season is done, save the tubers from your favorite plants if you want only these specific varieties blooming the following year.
