The flowers are attractive to butterflies and other insects. This variety is tall, so it needs to be tied up. If you remove faded flowers in time, you can prolong its flowering. Dahlias are heat-loving plants. They can withstand temperatures down to -12.2 ° C frost. Therefore, for the winter, their tubers should be dug up and stored in slightly damp peat, in a dark and cool place. They do this at the end of September.
Interestingly, the dahlia is the national flower of Mexico and was named after Dr Andrew Dahl, a Swedish botanist. Dahlia was first brought to Europe from Mexico. It was first grown in the botanical garden in Madrid. From there, it spread throughout Europe. Both Great Britain and Holland were largely responsible for the cultivation of thousands of cultivars.

How to Plant - Dahlia Avignon
Guide and tips for planting canna lily bulbs
Choose the planting location: Canna bulbs prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.
Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.
Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 8-12 cm deep and place the Canna bulb with the pointy end facing up. Space the bulbs about 36-48 cm apart.
Cover the bulbs: Cover the Canna bulbs with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs: Give the bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Canna bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Mulch the area: Add a layer of organic mulch around the bulbs to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the bulbs to prevent rot.
Fertilize the plants: Canna plants are heavy feeders and require regular fertilization throughout the growing season. Apply a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks or use slow-release fertilizer at the time of planting.
Monitor the bulbs: Canna bulbs typically take about 2-3 weeks to sprout, so be patient. Once they sprout, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Canna plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional deadheading to promote continuous blooming.
