Fleurel - Giant 'dinner plate' white flowers which will either blend or contrast nicely with other flowers in your garden.
Large or 'Dinner Plate' Type - This isn't an official group of dahlias but we've separated them because of the many requests we've had for this large, 6"-12" flowered types; may need support or staking. Native to Mexico and Central America, dahlias provide us with more pleasure than almost any other summer bulb we have because they produce an abundance of wonderful flowers perfect for 'gift giving flower arrangements' throughout early summer and again in late summer until frost. Especially if they are picked for arrangements, these 'cut and come again' plants require almost no care, they appear to be pest resistant and they come in a myriad of colors. Our friends really enjoy them as well! They make a great 'shoes and socks' plant for larger bulbs or perennials and are happy in full sun but will tolerate partial shade. Dahlias have different shapes from the tightly formed flowers of the pompon-types to the looser ones of the cactus-types and the decorative in-between types, they're all terrific! Top-sized tubers; approx. 1 per sq. ft.; whz 8-10; has overwintered in our whz 7 garden with extra winter mulch among our daffodils and tulips; we divided them into groups according to their shape.
