Dahlia Sir Alf Ramsey adds a touch of sophistication to your garden. Plant with care, considering the danger of frost and the optimal conditions for growth. While this plant enhances your outdoor space, please note it's not considered pet-friendly.

Harness the beauty of these long-lasting blossoms for stunning flower arrangements and late-season bouquets ? the more you cut, the more dahlias bloom, perpetuating the cycle of natural splendor. Experience the botanical bliss of Dahlia Sir Alfred Ramsey ? a floral masterpiece that transforms your garden into a haven of natural beauty and elegance.

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.
