The Dinnerplate Dahlia, 'Mingus Alex', is one of the darkest colored dinnerplate varieties. It's 10-inch wide, velvet-red flowers are stunning! This is one the top dahlias for bouquets.

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.
