What are you looking for in a dahlia? Huge blooms to bring indoors in soft colors that complement arrangements? Easy care, with minimal fuss in the border or container? Well, this waterlily-type dahlia is for you. What sets Kelvin Floodlight apart is the impressive plant, producing sturdy stems that rarely need staking. Lifting in fall may also be optional in temperate climates like our Zone 6b. We mulch heavily and let them be and are rarely disappointed. Planted in masses, this dahlia will produce 20-30 blooms in a few seasons and will fill gaps that develop in the perennial border. They also make excellent potted plants (1 tuber in a 12" pot). They prefer full sun, though partial shade will work in the South, and they like rich soil and even moisture. With few pests or diseases to trouble them, these dahlias will keep blooming when other annuals and perennials peter out. They're long lived in arrangements too, lasting 7-10 days without fail. Easy-to-grow dahlias are not bothered by deer, rabbits or other garden pests, though bees and butterflies love them. Dahlia decorative ?Kelvin Floodlight'
