Dahlia 'Extase' Decorative Dahlia Bulb

Item #29694


Months of gorgeous pollinator-friendly flowers

Plant Dahlia 'Extase' in early spring, and in midsummer to late fall, typically to first frost, it blooms in masses of 4- to 6-inch perfectly shaped two-toned flowers in beautiful shades of salmon and apricot. 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, 'Extase' is a clump-forming perennial with a compact, 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. Dahlia 'Extase' is heat tolerant and deer resistant. This plant is not pet friendly.
