Cultivar Notes - 'Akita'
Akita is a stunning new dahlia with deep cinnabar red petals that blend into yellow towards the flower center. Petal edges are cupped ever so slightly, just enough to tease with a tiny showing of the lighter colored undersides.
Genus Notes - Dahlia
Fewer flowers say "summer" like the bold blooms of dahlias. These favorite plants come in two basic types: compact bedding forms and tall border types. Both have upright stems and grow from tuberous roots. They come in an amazing range of colors and flower forms, from single, small, daisy-like blooms to huge, ruffled flowers up to 8" across. Compact bedding dahlias are ideal for container gardens and for edging beds. Use the border types to add height and color to gardens in late summer to fall. Dahlias also make great cut flowers.
