Dahlias are a popular annual for patio pots, window boxes and borders. The Novation Dahlia series is a new series that has compact, bushy plants and large blooms. The Novation series have bright double blooms that stand out against the green foliage. Their large flowers have a long bloom window, and the large blooms can reach 2.5 to 3 inches.
Novation Dahlias come in 8 colors but we are growing 7 of them. We have elected to continue to grow the Dahlinova California, a red-yellow bicolor, until Novation has a suitable replacement. Dummen Orange, the breeder of Novation, says that there are a lot more colors that will be introduced in the next few years.
Dahlias offer any garden that splash of striking color everyone enjoys. With dark green foliage and large blooms that seemingly burst in rich, vibrant displays of beautiful long-lasting color, dahlias always deliver a brilliant contrast to any surrounding plantings. In the garden or in a fresh cut flower arrangement, Dahlias are always picture perfect . Their charming blooms have made them popular for centuries!
Dahlias are utilized in border plantings, mass landscape planting, flower beds, window boxes and patio containers.
