Powder-Puff Dahlia Polka

New

Powder-Puff Dahlia Polka

A bicolor dahlia to charm the birds from the trees. With its whimsical style and bright bicolor palette, the enchanting 5-5½" blooms of Polka put the fun back in borders and bouquets. Aptly named, this powder-puff type dahlia features fluffy yellow centers surrounded by creamy petals washed and edged in pretty, soft pink. It's a lively variety that looks even more amazing when grouped in threes or fives where the striking blooms can be admired from the first weeks of summer through fall when the first frosts appear. Place them in borders or along walkways outdoors; bring them indoors for lush bouquets and fresh arrangements.
