Description / Dahlia 'Sylvia' Pompon Bulb

Plant 'Sylvia' Pompon Dahlias with anticipation as early spring arrives, signaling the end of frosty days. As the seasons unfold, from midsummer's warmth to the crispness of late fall, this exquisite pompon dahlia unfurls its splendor, adorning the garden with an abundance of blooms. Each flower, measuring approximately 4 inches in diameter, presents a captivating display of tightly rolled, cupped petals in a captivating array of orange tones, ranging from the soft blush of peach to the vibrant allure of coral. Standing tall on sturdy stems, resilient even amidst rain and wind, these orange flowers become a magnet for nature's pollinators, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to dance among their nectar-rich bounty for months on end.

Beyond their ornamental allure, the blooms of Dahlia 'Sylvia' serve a practical purpose, as they are perfect for creating late-season bouquets and floral arrangements that bring the garden's beauty indoors. With each stem you harvest, you're not only adorning your home but also encouraging the plant to produce even more dahlias, ensuring a continuous spectacle of color and fragrance.

As a hybrid variety, Dahlia 'Sylvia' embodies the best qualities of its lineage, forming clumps with an upright growth habit that adds structure and elegance to any landscape. Whether planted as a striking focal point in a container or integrated into beds and borders, this perennial gem shines brightest when massed or grouped together, creating a captivating tapestry of color and texture.

To cultivate Dahlia 'Sylvia' to its fullest potential, provide it with a sunny to partly shady location featuring fertile, humus-rich soil that drains well, and offer protection from strong winds. This resilient plant adapts gracefully to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, and can thrive in soil with a neutral, acidic, or alkaline pH. Throughout the growing season, maintain consistent moisture levels, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist without becoming waterlogged. Regularly pinching out growing tips will encourage the development of a bushier plant, while diligent deadheading of spent flowers will stimulate continuous blooming.

Zones 8 - 11. 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.
