Dahlia Giant Ball Marble Ball – 1/pkg
Dahlias are extremely showy in the garden. Giant ball dahlias offer large, ball shaped blooms 4-5″ in diameter. ‘Marble Ball’ has distinctive flowers marbled in deep purple and cream. Grows up to 40″ tall.
Plant tubers in spring, after risk of frost has passed. Dahlias need full sun, and prefer a soil that’s amended with organic matter, like compost. Plants get big and need support, so hammer a stake into the ground when planting to tie to as it grows. Blooms will begin in midsummer and continue through Fall. Feed with a blooming plant food every 3-4 weeks for best flowers. After frost has killed the top growth in Fall, dig up tubers and store for the winter. Tubers multiply into a clump throughout the growing season. You’ll find you have more dahlias to plant next year!
