Dinnerplate Dahlia Mrs. Eileen

Dinnerplate Dahlia Mrs. Eileen

Size and beauty in one delightful package!
Introducing Mrs. Eileen—the first bright orange dahlia in the dinnerplate size! Plant this gorgeous perennial in a sun-splashed border and watch the landscape come alive with the flowers' warm orange hue and lush, fully double form.

Long blooming in the garden, filling the space with big, beautiful dahlias from summer to the first frosts of fall. Deer resistant and easy to grow. Butterflies love the showy flowers and bright colors, too.
