Product Description

An outstanding variety of dinnerplate dahlia in bright citrus shades, Motto Dahlia will surprise and delight. Blooms nearly eight inches across dazzle in a lovely shade of apricot-orange, merging to yellow at the tips and at the center. Sturdy, upright stems easily support this wealth of color. Create a miniature forest of brightly-colored dahlias by planting Motto in groups of five or ten. These cheerful dahlias will draw the eye at a mature height of three feet. Huge, fire-orange blooms will stand proudly above your shorter dahlias, and serve as a jaw-dropping centerpiece to a bright summertime bouquet. Motto is absolutely delightful as a cut flower, and you can achieve the largest of blooms by pruning off all other buds so all the energy goes into one. Dahlia 'Motto'
