Description / Myrtle's Folly Dinner Plate Dahlia Bulb

Myrtle's Folly Dahlia, a captivating fimbriata dinner plate dahlia that promises to enchant your garden from the earliest whispers of spring until the crisp embrace of late fall's first frost. Picture a spectacle of nature unfolding before your eyes, as this splendid beauty graces your garden with masses of exhibition-quality blooms, each measuring a breathtaking 6 to 8 inches in diameter. With petals delicately fringed in shades of mauve and purple, seamlessly transitioning into vibrant oranges, Myrtle's Folly is a true masterpiece of floral elegance.

Standing tall on long, sturdy stems, these fully double flowers are not just a feast for the eyes; they also beckon graceful butterflies and vibrant hummingbirds, adding a touch of whimsy and wonder to your outdoor sanctuary. And when it's time to bring the beauty indoors, Myrtle's Folly Dahlia shines as an exquisite addition to any floral arrangement, infusing your home with the essence of garden splendor.

As a distinguished member of the Dahlia hybrid family, Myrtle's Folly boasts a clump-forming perennial habit with an upright stance, making it a versatile addition to gardens of all shapes and sizes. Whether nestled in containers, gracing garden beds, or adorning the middle of borders, this dahlia commands attention wherever it is planted. While it stands as a striking specimen on its own, its true magic unfolds when planted en masse, creating a tapestry of color and texture that is nothing short of breathtaking.

To unlock the full potential of Myrtle's Folly Dahlia, ensure it is planted in a sunny location with fertile, humus-rich soil that drains well and is shielded from harsh winds. Whether your soil is clay, loam, or sandy, and whether its pH leans towards neutral, acidic, or alkaline, this resilient beauty adapts with ease. Throughout the growing season, maintain consistent moisture levels, never allowing the soil to dry out completely. Embrace the art of pinching out growing tips to encourage a bushier plant, and revel in the ritual of deadheading spent flowers to promote a continuous cascade of blooms.

For those fortunate enough to reside in Zones 3-7, Myrtle's Folly Dahlia can thrive with proper care, even enduring the chill of winter when bulbs are lifted and stored. And while its allure knows no bounds, Myrtle's Folly also boasts the added benefit of deer resistant, ensuring that your garden remains a sanctuary untouched by unwelcome guests. However, it's important to note that while this dahlia invites winged wonders, it is not pet-friendly, so caution is advised for furry friends.

In summary, Myrtle's Folly Dahlia is more than just a flower; it's a testament to the enduring beauty of nature, a celebration of color, and a beacon of joy in any garden landscape. So why wait? Bring home Myrtle's Folly today and embark on a journey of garden enchantment that knows no bounds.

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.

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.
