Decorative Dahlia Ferncliff Illusion

Decorative Dahlia Ferncliff Illusion

Impressive in size and color, this outstanding dinnerplate type is perfect for adding stunning impact to feature beds, cutting gardens and borders. There are few as pretty and eye-catching as Ferncliff Illusion, with its substantial 8-10" fully double blooms and crisp white petals edged in pretty lilac-pink. It boasts an exceptional growth habit, producing plentiful flowers from midsummer to the first fall frost. We suggest planting this head-turner where you want butterflies to populate, as they will come to the garden in droves. Makes an excellent cut flower, too. To encourage more and larger dahlias well into the fall season, remove any spent flowers from the plant.
  • Hardiness Zones 3-10. Lift in Fall in zones 3-8
  • Mature Height 4.2 feet
  • Bloom Time Midsummer until first frost in the fall
  • Light Requirements Full Sun
