Florissa’s Choice: Dahlia Myrtle’s Folly

This summer put Dinnerplate Dahlia Myrtle’s Folly at the top of your ‘must-have’ list. You’ll be impressed with the ever-changing variations in these gorgeous blooms. Myrtle’s Folly opens up with beautiful raspberry buds to reveal blooms of hot pink with orange, pink, and yellow hues.

Zany petals twist and turn, splitting slightly at the tips.

Each bloom is a supersize puffball and can easily measure up to 8” across. This dahlia grows to heights of at least 90 cm (36”) with strong supportive stems. Simply beautiful in cut flower bouquets, Myrtle’s Folly will entice you into the garden again and again.

Florissa’s Tip:  Got the itch to get growing? If spring hasn’t yet arrived in your area, start your dahlias in containers indoors and just move them out to the garden after all danger of frost has passed. You’ll be well on your way to that much anticipated first bloom of summer!
