Item #29188
$25.95 $15.57


A formal decorative, dinnerplate dahlia with up to 10-inch blooms

Plant Dahlia 'Barbarossa' in early spring, and in midsummer to late fall, typically to first frost, it blooms in huge—8- to 10-inch—flowers dense with ruffled red to dark red petals. Borne on long, sturdy stems, the highly decorative blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden and make excellent cut flowers.

A Dahlia hybrid, commonly called dahlia, 'Barbarossa' is a clump-forming herbaceous perennial with an upright habit. A great container and garden plant, nice in beds and the middle of the border. It makes a stunning specimen, but it's shown to best effect when massed or grouped.

Easy-care, Dahlia 'Barbarossa' grows best in sunny locations with fertile, humus-rich, well-draining soil, having a neutral to acid pH, protected from strong winds. During the growing season, the plant should be kept consistently moist and never allowed to dry out. Pinching out growing tips encourages a bushy plant. Deadheading spent flowers promotes additional blooms. This plant is not pet friendly.
