Description

The huge flowers on this fimbriata dahlia attract butterflies and hummingbirds

Dahlia Myrtle's Folly is an enchanting fimbriata dinner plate dahlia, renowned for its stunning, exhibition-quality blooms. Plant it in early spring and watch as it transforms your garden from midsummer to late fall with its 6- to 8-inch fully double flowers, adorned with fringed petals that exhibit a captivating blend of mauve, purple, and orange hues. These striking blooms, borne on sturdy, long stems, are not only gorgeous but are also magnets for butterflies and hummingbirds, adding a dynamic element to your garden. They also make for exquisite cut flowers, bringing a touch of nature's beauty indoors.

As a Dahlia hybrid, Myrtle's Folly is a clump-forming perennial with upright growth. It's an excellent choice for both container and garden plantings. While it stands out as a single specimen, its beauty is magnified when planted in groups or masses in beds and borders.

For optimal growth, plant dahlia in sunny locations with fertile, humus-rich, well-draining soil. It's resilient to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, and can tolerate neutral, acidic, or alkaline pH levels. Consistent moisture is key during the growing season, and the plant should never be allowed to dry out. Pinching growing tips and deadheading old blooms will encourage a bushier plant and promote additional blooms. Dahlias are suitable for Zones 3-7 if the bulb is lifted and stored during winter. As a bonus, Myrtle's Folly is deer resistant. Dahlia is not considered pet friendly.
