I'll be the first to admit it that I always fall for the marketing on packaging. So when I saw this Dahlia package at Lowe's this past spring, I had to try it. On the package, there was a picture of a Dahlia the size of a child's head! They call it the Dinnerplate Dahlia.
Here it is finally in bloom! I should have photographed it next to my big head to show you that it's not the size it said it would get to. Definitely not the size of a child's head. It's probably more like a size of a softball. Oh well, at least it bloomed!
Does anyone know, should I dig up these bulbs before winter and replant them again next spring? Or should I just leave them in the ground? It doesn't say on the packaging.
