    Frequently Asked Questions

    Peaches and Cream dahlias are a popular variety among gardeners for their vibrant peach and pink blooms. They typically grow to be around 3-4 feet tall, with a spread of 1-2 feet. The exact height can vary per tuber, but also depending on factors such as soil, water supply, fertilizing and the amount of sun.

    It's important to ensure they have a spot in your garden where it’s wind free and that you stake your Peaches and Cream dahlias as they can grow very tall.

    In terms of care, regular deadheading is necessary to encourage continuous blooming throughout the growing season. Also, if you don’t remove the spent blooms, the blooms will get top heavy which gives the risk of a broken stem.

    Yes. While these dahlias are technically considered tender perennials, they can be encouraged to return year after year with proper care. After the first frost in the fall, cut the plants back to just a few inches above the ground, and carefully dig up the tubers. Allow the tubers to dry in a cool, dry location for a few days, then store them in a cool, dark place over the winter.

    In the spring, after the danger of frost has passed, plant the tubers about 5-6 inches deep and 24 inches apart. Water regularly and fertilize every few weeks throughout the growing season. With proper care, Peaches and Cream dahlias can return year after year, providing a beautiful display of color in your garden.

    If you live in an area with a warmer climate, such as USDA zone 8 or higher, you can leave Peaches and Cream dahlias in the ground.

    To grow Peaches and Cream dahlias, start by planting the tubers in well-draining soil in a sunny location after the last frost date in your area. Dig a hole that is twice as deep as the tuber and place it with the "eye" facing up. Cover with soil and water thoroughly.

    As the plants grow, provide support with stakes or cages to prevent them from falling over. Water deeply and regularly, but make sure the soil doesn't become waterlogged.

    Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer every few weeks to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms. Deadhead regularly to encourage continuous blooming. In the fall, after the first frost, dig up the tubers and store them in a cool, dry place for the winter.

    We recommend planting Peaches and Cream dahlias in a spot that receives full sun for at least six hours a day. The soil should be well-drained, rich in organic matter, and slightly acidic with a pH range of 6.0-6.5.

    When planting the dahlias, make sure to dig a hole that is deep enough to accommodate the entire tuber and wide enough to allow for proper spacing between each plant. Gently spread the roots out and backfill the hole with soil, being careful not to damage the stems or leaves.

    Water the dahlias regularly, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage continued blooming and remove any diseased or damaged foliage promptly to prevent the spread of disease.
