Dahlia 'Valley Rust Bucket'
This spectacular garden workhorse was lovingly bred by Leone and David Smith and is a must grow. The 3 inch miniature ball-shaped flowers of ‘Valley Rust Bucket’ are a deep, rusty red-orange blend that is a favorite among our market customers and everyone who visits the garden. Productive plants reach 4 feet tall and produce tall, weather proof, long lasting stems all season long. A real winner!
Flower type: ball
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-100 days
Plant spacing: 12-18”
Pinch: when plants are 12” tall
Cut when blooms are ¾ 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.
