Cornel is a vivid, red ball dahlia that thrives in our hot climate. The plants tend to be around 4ft tall with strong, straight stems excellent for cutting.  They also make a great addition to any garden. Cornel is productive with flowers that are 3" - 4" in diameter.

    How To Plant:  

    We plant our dahlias in early June, but sometimes as late as early July in the south. Heat and insects cause a lot of stress to early planted dahlias here and they fare MUCH better when planted in early summer. The difference is overwhelmingly positive. They will begin to bloom at the end of August to early September when planted during this time.  Dahlias thrive in the cooler temps of Fall. 

    Plant in full sun in well drained, fertilized soil, 12-18" apart. Dig a hole that's approx 5-6 inches deep. Set the tubers with the growing points, or “eyes,” facing up, and cover with soil. Do not plant too deep. Eyes should be just below ground level. Do not water deeply until your dahlia begins to grow or rot may occur. We recommend pinching when the plants are 6 inches tall.    Tall, large-flowered cultivars will require support. 

    In zones 8 and warmer, dahlias can technically be overwintered in the ground though we do not recommend this.  Heat and insect pressure all but ruin overwintered dahlias that get too big too soon in spring. Additionally, digging and dividing them actually increases yield and bloom size. For best practice, dig up dahlias after the foliage has died back in late Fall and store in a cool, dark and relatively dry place like a basement.

    What to expect: Each order consists of one dahlia plant. Most Dahlia orders will have at least 2 tubers attached BUT NOT ALL. All dahlias will come pre-sprouted. Tubers will be stamped with the variety name (less waste, YAY!). Please note that sometimes in transit, your sprout will be knocked off, but we have never had a problem with that affecting our dahlia tubers and their flower production or health of the plant.
