Dahlia height

Posted by luv2dig_de Z7 DE (My Page) on

I'm new to Dahlias, but I just love them! I'm confused though with all the classifications by color, style, and flower size, I can't find any classif. by height.

I need short dahlias that I'm using for border plants. Ideally I'd like most of them around 12" and I'd like to stay with a red/orange/pink palette.

Can anyone help me with some suggestions by name or a website that classifies by height?

RE: Dahlia height

There really isn't a classification by height, but the link below will take you to one site specializing in shorter dahlias. For short ones like the 12" goal you mention, I'd just stick with the annual dahlias you can find at the big stores Lowe's Home Depot etc. But for real excitement and variety, there's nothing like the 3-4-5+ footers.

Enjoy your newfound love of dahlias.

RE: Dahlia height

If you check out Ferncliff Gardens, they have quite the selections. You can at least get an idea of what you'd like! Either check the Miniature or Bedding.

You could try Suitzuz Julie 14" purply pink (very pretty) and Longwood Dainty 20" orange/peach in colour (my fav from last year)

Just a thought :)
