Blooms summer through to first frost. Double Jill has yellow and white ball-shaped 2″ flowers tinged with a red-pink blush. It belongs in the decorative group.
Dahlia is native to Mexico and South America.
Wants adequate moisture during its growing period. Protect from slugs and snails – particularly when fresh shoots emerge.
Dahlias are perennial but not cold hardy. The tubers can overwinter in the ground in Zone 8 or warmer, but in colder climates they should be dug after frost and stored indoors over winter. They should be loosely packed in peat moss, or wood shavings and kept slightly moist but not wet. They should be planted outside once the danger of frost has passed and soil temperature has reached approximately 60°.
Divide tubers when dormant, or take softwood cuttings when grow start in spring.
