Description

Beautiful, salmon pink color and a large 8″ – 10″ bloom.  Islander gives you lots of blooms for a dinner plate dahlia, which typically will give you 8-10 blooms per season.  Thick stems hold that big flower upright, really impressive and is a customer favorite.  Big tubers and a good tuber producer.  Nice foliage.


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
