Description / Dahlia Myrtle's Folly Dinner Plate Dahlia Bulb

Dahlia Myrtle's Folly is an extraordinary fimbriata dinner plate dahlia. Plant it in the early spring and watch as it blooms from midsummer to late fall, typically until the first frost. Its stunning 6- to 8-inch fully double flowers showcase a unique blend of mauve, purple, and orange hues on fringed petals that create a mesmerizing texture. These blooms, carried on robust, long stems, are not only visually stunning but also attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. And they make exceptional cut flowers to beautify your indoor spaces.

Myrtle's Folly is a Dahlia hybrid, often referred to simply as dahlia. This upright clump-forming perennial makes it an ideal addition to containers and gardens. While it stands out as an individual specimen, its beauty is truly amplified when planted in groups or massed together in beds or in the middle of borders.

Dahlia thrives in sunny spots with fertile, humus-rich soil that drains well. It is adaptable to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sand, and it can handle neutral, acidic, or alkaline pH levels. Consistent moisture is key during the growing season, and the plant should never be allowed to dry out. Encourage bushier growth by pinching out growing tips and promote further blooms by deadheading spent flowers. Dahlia can be grown in Zones 3-7, provided the bulb is lifted and stored during winter. Myrtle's Folly is resistant to deer, and it should be noted that this plant is not considered pet friendly.
