Dahlias are great flowers.

 They come in all sizes and colors. 

They grow from tubers you plant in spring after all chances of frost is over. 

 Dahlias require soil with good drainage and  they do well in partial to full sun. 

Dahlias are not hardy, so they must be dug up before the first frost.  They can be stored and replanted the following year.

They are one plant that I add every year to my own garden because they are so dependable and rewarding.
