This is a Decorative bi-color Dahlia. In warmer climates you maybe able to leave the tubers in the ground with heavy mulch. But for me in Zone 6 I have to dig the tubers before first frost.Clean and let dry good.Pack in dry peat and store in cool dry place. Both pictures are from the same plant the blooms get darker as they are on the plant a day or two.This has been a profuse bloomer with lots of blooms at one time.
