Cultivar Notes - 'XXL™ Yucatan'
Bi-color blooms of pink and white grace plants that grow just 12" tall - the perfect size for containers. This variety excelled in trials across the nation, going steadily about its business of producing glorious, 6" blooms all season long.
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.
Series Notes - XXL™
Dahlias have always been a dramatic addition to a garden or patio, but with the introduction of new Dahlia XXL, the curtain has opened on a whole new act. All seven XXL varieties are just as their name suggests — large-flowered dahlias with blooms boasting almost half a foot of diameter. What’s different, though, is that these tremendous flowers grow on a medium vigorous plant, which is controllable and keeps a suitable size for the garden through the summer. Dahlia XXL has been a strong performer in trials throughout North America over the summer of 2011. Texan and Georgian heat, Colorado’s high altitude, Ontario’s northern light — XXL dahlias have performed beautifully in all conditions.
