Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Marta dahlias can come back every year if they are properly cared for and the growing conditions are favorable. As a perennial plant, dahlias have the potential to return year after year, producing a new crop of blooms each season.

However, Martha dahlias are not always reliably hardy in all colder regions and may need extra winter protection, they need to get lifted up and stored indoors until the following spring.

In warmer climates, such as USDA zones 8 or higher, the Marta dahlia can be left in the ground. They just need a little extra layer of mulch in colder times. Cut back the dead foliage and they will come back next year.

Marta dahlias are a type of decorative dahlia that are prized for their large, showy flowers and long blooming season. These plants are native to Mexico and Central America, but they can be grown in many parts of the world as long as they receive plenty of sunlight and are planted in well-draining soil.

In terms of climate, Marta dahlias prefer warm temperatures and can tolerate some drought, but they may not do well in areas with extremely high humidity. They also benefit from regular fertilization and may require staking to support their tall stems.

Overall, Marta dahlias grow best in full sun and well-draining soil and can be a beautiful addition to any garden or landscape.

Good news, they 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.

Marta dahlias are typically planted in the spring after the threat of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. In most regions, this is usually around late May or early June. Planting earlier may result in damage to the tubers or slow growth due to colder soil temperatures. In warmer climates, it is perfectly okay to plant them earlier or even leave them year-round in the ground.

It is important to prepare the soil properly by loosening it and adding organic matter, such as compost or aged manure. The tubers should be planted 4 to 5 inches deep and spaced 24 inches apart, depending on the size of the tubers.

With proper care, they will produce beautiful blooms from mid-summer through the first frost.
