Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the steps to plant Yellow Star dahlias:

• Choose a location with well-draining soil, full sun exposure, and protection from strong winds.
• Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the dahlia tuber.
• Mix some organic matter like compost or aged manure into the bottom of the hole.
• Place the dahlia tuber in the hole with the "eye" or growing point facing up.
• Cover the tuber with soil and water it thoroughly.
• As the dahlia grows, provide support with stakes or a trellis, and water regularly.
• Once the plant has grown to around 12 inches tall, pinch off the top of the center stem to encourage bushier growth and more blooms.

Enjoy the beautiful Yellow Star dahlias when they bloom in late summer or early fall.

Soaking Yellow Star dahlias before planting is not necessary, but it can be helpful in encouraging the tubers to sprout more quickly. Soaking can also soften the outer layer of the tubers, making it easier for them to absorb moisture and nutrients from the soil.

However, it's important not to soak the tubers for too long, as this can cause them to rot. A good rule of thumb is to soak the tubers for no more than 2 hours before planting. Ultimately, whether or not to soak the dahlias before planting is up to personal preference and may depend on the individual gardener's experience and specific growing conditions.

Yellow Star dahlias typically grow to be about 4-5 feet tall (120-150 cm). These dahlias are classified as "medium-sized" dahlias, with flowers that typically range from 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) in diameter.

Yellow Star dahlias are known for their vibrant, golden-yellow blooms that are set off by dark green foliage. Like all dahlias, Yellow Star dahlias thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. They can be planted in the spring after the danger of frost has passed and will bloom from mid-summer until the first frost. With proper care, Yellow Star dahlias can be a stunning addition to any garden.

It is not recommended to leave Yellow Star dahlias in the ground over winter if you live in a region where the ground freezes. Dahlias are not cold hardy, and if left in the ground, the tubers can freeze and die.

This can result in the loss of your plant, and you will have to replant it next year. It is best to dig up the tubers after the first frost and store them in a cool, dry place until the next growing season. By doing this, you can protect the tubers and ensure that your plant will survive and thrive the following year.

If you live in an area with a warm climate, such as USDA zone 8 or higher, you can just leave your Yellow Star dahlias in the ground. Give them an extra layer of mulch in the wintertime.
