    In terms of height, Mom's Special dahlias typically grow to be between 3 to 4 feet tall. However, the exact height can vary depending on growing conditions such as soil quality, sunlight exposure, and watering frequency.

    It's important to provide adequate support for the plants as they grow, especially if they are exposed to strong winds or heavy rain. With proper care and attention, Mom's Special dahlias can produce stunning blooms that add color and beauty to any garden. Mom's Special is a type of dahlia that produces beautiful, large flowers with vibrant colors.

    To plant Mom's Special dahlias outside, follow these steps:

    • Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil.
    • Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or debris and adding compost or other organic matter.
    • Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the dahlia tuber and deep enough so that the top of the tuber is 2-3 inches below the soil surface.
    • Place the tuber in the hole with the "eyes" or growing points facing up.
    • Cover the tuber with soil and water thoroughly.
    • Space the dahlias about 24 inches apart to allow room for growth.
    • Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
    • Water regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
    • As the plants grow, support them with stakes or cages to prevent them from falling over.

    With proper care, Mom's Special dahlias should bloom in mid to late summer and continue until the first frost.

    It depends on where you live and the conditions of your garden. In general, dahlias are not cold-hardy and need to be dug up and stored indoors over winter in areas where the ground freezes.

    However, if you live in a region with mild winters and the ground does not freeze, you may be able to leave your Mom's Special dahlias in the ground over winter. It is important to provide adequate mulching around the plants to protect them from cold and moisture, as well as from potential pests and diseases.

    Additionally, be sure to monitor the plants throughout the winter and take appropriate measures if they show signs of stress or damage.

    Mom’s Special can last in the ground for several months, but the exact duration depends on several factors such as the weather conditions, soil quality, and overall care. Under optimal growing conditions, Mom’s Special Dahlias can bloom from mid-summer through the fall. The flowers typically last for several weeks, and with deadheading, the plant can continue to produce new blooms throughout the growing season.

    With proper care, Mom’s Special Dahlias can last for up to two to three years in the ground, but they may require lifting and storage during the winter months in colder climates. It is essential to provide adequate water, sunlight, and nutrients to the plant to ensure its longevity. Regular maintenance, such as fertilizing and pruning, can also help extend the life of Mom’s Special.
