I have planted a couple of smaller Dahlias before and found a three pack of these on clearance at Wal-Mart. Planted them at the end of April/beginning of May. They have far surpassed my expectations! The plant is about 3 feet tall (I ended up staking them early on) and oh boy are they prolific bloomers! There are 23 buds/blooms just from one tuber. Very beautiful colors. The only problem I have had is from tobacco worms. They just can't seem to get enough. Overall very low maintenance.
