Description

Cute, white collarette dahlia that really belts out the blooms, and is covered with flowers all season long.  Super star tuber producer as well.  Alpen Cherub doesn’t make a great cut flower because the petals are so delicate, and they tend to fall off easily.  Better to enjoy the plant covered in flowers all season in your garden.


Growers Notes:

  • Dahlias are planted in spring after the soil has warmed up to 60 degrees
  • Plant when night time temperatures are consistently in the 50’s
  • Plant around the same time you would plant corn, potatoes and other warm season crops
  • Plant dahlia tubers in an area that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight per day
  • No extra water until sprout is 5”-6” tall, normal spring rains will give all the moisture it needs
  • After the dahlia sprout is 6”, deep soak every 2-3 days
