Frequently Asked Questions

The best time to plant Creve Coeur dahlias is in the spring after the last frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. In most colder areas, this means planting in late May or early June. However, the exact timing may depend on your specific climate and growing conditions.

If you live in a warmer climate, such as USDA zone 8 or higher, then you can plant them already early in spring and leave them year-round in the ground.

Dahlias prefer well-drained soil and full sun, so it's important to choose a planting location that meets these requirements. To ensure the best growth and blooms, it's also important to provide regular watering and fertilization throughout the growing season.

Creve Coeur dahlias thrive in full sun and well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. The best place to plant them is in a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. The soil should be moist but not waterlogged, and it's important to avoid planting them in areas that tend to flood.

Additionally, dahlias prefer a slightly acidic soil pH between 6.0 and 6.5. It's a good idea to add compost or other organic matter to the soil before planting to provide nutrients and improve soil structure. With proper care and the right growing conditions, Creve Coeur dahlias will produce an abundance of colorful blooms.

While deadheading can be beneficial for many types of plants, it is not strictly necessary for dahlias, including Creve Coeur dahlias. However, deadheading can help prolong the blooming season and promote bushier growth in dahlias.

If you choose to deadhead your Creve Coeur dahlias, it is best to do so regularly, removing the spent flowers as soon as they start to fade. This will encourage the plant to produce more blooms and can also prevent the formation of seeds, which can divert energy away from flower production.

Plus, don't your dahlias look nicer when all of the spent blooms are removed?

Good news, Creve Coeur dahlias can multiply, but as a gardener, you need to help. To encourage multiplication, it is recommended that you divide the tubers and replant them every few years. This will help to keep the plant healthy, promote better blooms, and increase the overall size of your Dahlia patch.

It is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Firstly, dig up the tubers after the first frost and let them dry in a cool, well-ventilated area for a few days. Once dry, cut the tubers into smaller pieces, each with at least one "eye" or growing point. Plant the pieces in well-drained soil, about 6 inches apart, and water thoroughly. Keep the soil moist and in a warm, sunny location until the shoots emerge. Once the shoots reach about 6 inches tall, they can be divided and replanted in individual pots or in the garden.
