Dahlia Myrtle's Folly Dinner Plate Dahlia Bulb



A fun and fringy fimbriata dahlia you simply have to see to believe

Plant Dahlia Myrtle's Folly, a fimbriata dinner plate dahlia, in early spring, and in midsummer to late fall, typically to first frost, it blooms in masses of exhibition-quality 6- to 8-inch fully double flowers with fringy petals in shades of mauve and purple, blending to orange. 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, Myrtle's Folly is a clump-forming perennial with an upright habit. Dahlia is a great container and garden plant, nice in beds and the middle of the border. It makes a stunning specimen but is shown to best effect when massed or grouped.

Dahlia grows best in sunny locations with fertile, humus-rich, well-draining soil, protected from strong winds. The plant tolerates clay, loam, and sandy soils with a neutral, acidic, or alkaline pH. During the growing season, dahlia 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. Dahlia can be grown in Zones 3-7 if the bulb is lifted and stored during winter. Myrtle's Folly is deer resistant. This plant is not pet friendly.
