Plant Features

Dutch Explosion Cactus Dahlia is a spectacular mixture of colors with a center of yellowish white, that fades from white on the flowers to a purple ring around the tips. The flower blossoms to a diameter of 4-6 inches and the stems can grow up to 40 inches tall. It makes an excellent addition to any cutting garden. Dutch Explosion ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment.

Dahlia Plant Care: Wait until green sprouts emerge from the soil before watering. Then water deeply 2-3 times per week. Daily if in containers. Fertilize every 2-3 weeks for containers and every 3-4 weeks for soil grown. Use fertilizers that have a lower nitrogen count, generally half the amount of the other two on the NPK ratio. After frost has turned foliage brown, dig up the tubers and store them for the winter.
