Dahlia Color Spectacle
Product Description - Dahlia Color Spectacle
An enchanting dahlia from the Semi-cactus dahlia group (group 9). A medium-sized border dahlia. Bred in 1963. Originator: Bruidegom.
It reaches a height of up to 90 cm and a width of 45-60 cm. Its flowers are very colourful. They appear in Oni macro form, in warm tones. The petals are orange in colour and the tips are white. Therefore, this dahlia will add an exotic touch to any planting scheme, and it looks particularly good in a 'warm' tone garden. The flowering basket-like inflorescence is about the size of a dinner plate, 20-25 cm in diameter. Fragrance-free. The petals (lingual flowers) are large and fairly wide at the base. They are also slightly curved, rolled up into a tube at half (or less) the length and diverging in all directions from the middle of the flower. Their tips are pointed. The tubular flowers are small. The inflorescences of this dahlia bear a resemblance to cacti and ornamental dahlias, so they are often confused. They are considered the best for cuttings. It also looks good in the garden, in flowerbeds and borders, either as a single or mixed planting.
Color Spectacle prefers to grow in light, nutritious soils. The location for it is full sun (south-eastern exposure). It should be planted in May after the threat of frost has passed. The planting distance should be 50 cm apart. The planting depth is 15 cm. Dahlias are heat-loving plants. They can withstand frosts as low as -5 °C. The tubers are dug out for the winter and stored in slightly damp peat, in a dark and cool but frost-free place. Like all dahlias, it flowers from July to October.

How to Plant - Dahlia Color Spectacle
Guide and tips for planting Dahlia Bulbs and Tubers
Choose the planting location: Dahlia plants 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 or tubers: Dig a hole that is about 12-16 cm deep and place the Dahlia bulb or tuber with the "eyes" facing up. If planting multiple bulbs, space them at least 24-36 cm apart.
Cover the bulbs or tubers: Cover the Dahlia bulbs or tubers with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs or tubers: Give the bulbs or tubers a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Dahlia plants prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Stake the plants: Depending on the variety and size of Dahlia plants, they may need to be staked for support. Insert stakes into the ground near the bulbs or tubers before they start growing to avoid damaging the plant later on.
Monitor the bulbs or tubers: Dahlia bulbs or tubers typically take about 2-3 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Dahlia plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
