    Frequently Asked Questions

    Apache dahlias do multiply. Dahlias are perennials, meaning they come back year after year from their roots. They can be propagated by dividing the root clumps in the spring or fall, or by taking cuttings from the shoots in late spring or early summer. Dahlias will also produce larger tubers, which can be saved and replanted to grow new plants the following season.

    With proper care and maintenance, dahlia plants can provide a long-lasting and vibrant display of flowers in the garden. However, it's important to note that dahlias are not frost-tolerant and need to be dug up and stored in a cool, dry place over winter in colder climates.

    If you don't divide Apache dahlias, the plant will become overcrowded and may not bloom as well as it should. The size of the plant will increase, but its roots will become congested, reducing its ability to absorb the necessary nutrients and water it needs to thrive. Over time, the center of the plant will become woody and die, causing the plant to become less productive.

    This can also lead to disease problems, as stagnant water can collect in the center of the clump, promoting the growth of fungal pathogens. So, it is recommended to divide Apache dahlias every year to maintain their vigor and encourage healthy growth and blooming.

    Deadheading Apache dahlias does encourage more flowers. When you cut back the spent blooms, the plant is encouraged to produce new growth and additional flowers. This is because the energy and nutrients that would have gone into producing seeds is redirected towards new growth and flower production.

    Additionally, cutting the spent blooms also helps maintain the plant's overall appearance and prevents it from looking leggy and unkempt. It is important to cut the stems back to just above a node or leaf, as this is where new growth will emerge. By regularly cutting back the Apache dahlias, you can ensure a long and abundant flowering season.

    There are a few things you can do. Firstable, provide plenty of sunlight: Dahlias need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Secondly, fertilize regularly and make sure to use a balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.

    Regularly remove dead flowers to encourage the plant to produce more blooms and cut back side soots. You can do this by pinching back the side shoots on the stem to promote more energy to go into the main stem.

    Make sure the soil stays consistently moist, but not soggy. Water deeply once a week, making sure the water reaches the roots.

    The Apache Dahlia is a type of Cactus/ Semi-cactus Dahlia. These types of Dahlias are prized for its stunning blooms and vibrant colors. The Decorative Dahlia is known for its unique, frilly petals that have a crimped or wavy appearance. The Apache Dahlia is often referred to as a "dinnerplate" dahlia, as the blooms can reach up to 12 inches in diameter.

    The Cactus/ Semi-cactus dahlias come in a range of colors, including yellow, orange, red, pink, and purple. The Apache Dahlia is a popular choice for gardeners, as it is relatively easy to grow and produces abundant blooms from summer until fall.
