Dahlia 'Alpen Sundown'
This beautiful treasure has extremely unique coloring that stands out in the garden. Soft butter-yellow petals are delicately outlined and streaked with raspberry, so the color comes across like a vivid peach. While plants are on the petite side, this variety produces long stems that are excellent for cutting
Flower type: informal decorative/dinnerplate
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-100 days
Plant spacing: 12-18”
Pinch: when plants are 12” tall
Cut when blooms are one-third of the way open, but not overly ripe. To do this, check the back of each flower head, looking for firm and lush petals versus papery or slightly dehydrated ones. Place into water with hydrator, or sear stem ends by placing into 160-180° water and allow to cool for 1 hour. Blooms will last 5-6 days.
