    Frequently Asked Questions

    Golden Scepter is a dwarf variety of dahlia, and it typically grows to a height of about 32 to 36 inches. This makes it a great choice for gardeners who want to add a pop of bright golden-yellow color to their borders or containers without taking up too much vertical space.

    As with most dahlias, Golden Scepter prefers full sun and well-draining soil, and it blooms from mid-summer until the first frost. With its compact size and vibrant blooms, Golden Scepter is a popular choice for gardeners and florists alike.

    Golden Scepter dahlias are a type of dahlia that can withstand cold temperatures to some extent, but it is generally recommended to lift and store them for the winter to ensure their survival. Unless you live in an area with a warm climate, such as USDA zone 8 or higher, then you just leave them in the ground.

    Leaving them in the ground, in colder climates, increases the risk of the tubers rotting due to excess moisture or freezing in colder temperatures. To lift and store Golden Scepter dahlias, wait until the foliage has died back, then carefully dig up the tubers and brush off any excess soil. Allow the tubers to dry for a few days before storing them in a cool, dry place until the following spring.

    Yes, Golden Scepter dahlias can come back every year if they are properly cared for during the winter months. However, in colder climates, they may not survive the winter unless the tubers are dug up, stored in a cool, dry location, and replanted in the spring.

    Dahlias are tender perennials, which means that they are not frost-hardy and may require extra protection in the winter. With proper storage and planting in the spring, Golden Scepter dahlias can continue to bloom and thrive year after year.

    In warmer climates, such as USDA zone 8 or higher, you can leave the dahlias in the ground. Just give them an extra layer of mulch in the wintertime.

    To keep Golden Scepter dahlias blooming, it's essential to provide them with the proper care. This includes planting them in well-draining soil, giving them a sunny spot in the garden or patio, watering them regularly (but not too much), and fertilizing them every few weeks during the growing season. Deadheading spent flowers regularly can also encourage the plant to produce more blooms.

    Additionally, it's crucial to keep an eye out for pests and diseases, as they can harm the plant and reduce blooming. Overall, providing proper care, including adequate sunlight, water, nutrients, and protection from pests and diseases, can help ensure to keep your Golden Scepter dahlias bloom.
