Description / Dahlia Manhattan Island Dahlia Bulb

You won't believe the size of these blooms until you see them for yourself. Truly as big as dinnerplates, these blooms will reach up to 10 inches in diameter, bringing more color than you can possibly imagine.

Gigantic, fully-double flowers emerge in early summer with a blaze of fiery red color. The dense petals are a deep red that fades to a bright, golden yellow in the center. There are so many petals, that the blooms slowly open, sometimes leaving an ornamental ball of pinkish-yellow petals in the center.

Dahlia Manhattan Island reaches about 30 to 40 inches high, you might not think the tall sturdy stems can bear the weight of the huge blooms, but don't worry they will manage. However, if the stems begin to droop, you can always support them with the help of a stake. For the dahlias that reach 32 inches or more, staking might be required, especially in windy conditions.

This perennial is the perfect size for a variety of landscaping needs, including borders and containers. And you won't be able to resist cutting a few of these stunning flowers to bring into your home. Very floriferous, Manhattan Island offers tons of color from early summer to fall. Give it full sun, and keep the soil moist, and you will truly be amazed at this exceptional flower.

Please note, dahlia bulbs will need to be dug up and brought inside for the winter in the northern zones. Click here for Overwintering Dahlia tips! Not sure how deep to plant your bulbs? Click here for a handy bulb planting depth chart.

Zones 8 - 10. What is My Zone?

NOTE: In Zones 3-7, the bulbs will need to be lifted before the first frost and overwintered inside. However, dahlias can be grown as annuals in all Zones.

Dahlias come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Dahlias are grown from tubers, which are similar to bulbs, so they're easy to plant. Follow our expert's advice on how to plant and care for dahlias in our Dahlia Care Guide. To learn more about dahlias, read our blog All About Dahlias.
