Dahlia 'Park Princess' Cactus Dahlia Bulb

Item #29697


A cactus dahlia with 140 awards from the American Dahlia Society

Plant Dahlia 'Park Princess' in early spring, and in midsummer to late fall, typically to first frost, it blooms heavily in masses of 4-inch fully double flowers with a creamy-yellow center and pointed and rolled petals in a bright pink hue. 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, 'Park Princess' 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. Some light afternoon shade may be beneficial in hot summer climates. 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. Cactus dahlia can be grown in Zones 3-7 if the bulb is lifted and stored during winter. This plant is not pet friendly.
