A florist and CSA favorite, our Rock Run Ashley is the variety we're most excited to add to our dahlia lineup this year. These dahlias are excellent for wedding work as their coloring ranges from a buffy blush to a pale, muted peach (sometimes even on the same plant). This plant is shorter in height, but makes up for it with strong stems.
Eyes are the vegetative growing points of the tuber. The body of the tuber provides the dahlia with nutrition and energy to grow. Dahlia tubers are visually inspected for eyes before shipping—each tuber will have at least one visible eye. Eyes may sometimes break off in transit, but new growth will come from where the eye was previously.
Each order will arrive with instructions on growing your dahlia tubers. Dahlias prefer full sun, which means 6-8+ hours of sunlight per day. Hold off on watering your tuber until you see it sprout above ground. Each tuber needs approximately 2 square feet of growing space. Dahlias like well-draining soil, so don’t plant them in soil that is too wet. We recommend staking this variety of dahlia.
