The tubers this plant produces are relatively small and care must be taken so that they survive winter storage. But believe me, this flower is worth the extra care! I've had a lot of people see this flower and comment, "its so cute!". I have about 60 Dahlia plants planted right now, and plan on increasing next summer to around 90! For people to notice a tiny Dahlia next to the Dinner Plates is amazing!
