Komen Dahlia?

I was told these were dahlias. They are at Lowe's in Arkansas. I've never planted any dahlias. Any idea as to how big, growing conditions, etc. Any suggestions for a good site with information?

Thanks, Paula

They're a garden variety of dahlias- not a show variety. Keep them dead-headed (there's a few spent heads on there right now) & you'll have blooms until frost. The Colorado Dahlia Society site has everything you ever wanted or needed to know about growing & caring for dahlias.

Check out the growing guide on the menu item 'Dahlias That Grow Well in the South' on the Dahlia Society of Georgia website. It will give you a lot of information for growing your dahlias in the South.

Thanks for the useful links!

RE: Komen Dahlia?

I just found out that "Komen" is the series of plants that Lowes puts out in support of the Susan B. Komen foundation's mission to save lives & end breast cancer. The dahlia itself isn't called Komen- there's pink, lavendar, yellow, orange, etc- all called the Komen Dahlia- & there are geraniums & other plants in the series. So- you not only have a pretty plant for your garden all summer, you have helped a really good cause, too!
