I planted one each of these(4inch pot) into medium size wide mouth urns ,flowering was so so but the foliage more than made up for the lack of sunset colored flowers that I had .....I will be using these in the ground next year.
Dahlightful® Sultry Scarlet Dahlia variabilis
- Hardy Zones
- 8 - 11
- Mature Size
- 20 - 30 Inches
Deep green to purple foliage with double scarlet colored flowers.
Great in landscape and large containers.
These dahlias were bred to not form tubers, which improves their earliness to perform and container performance. However, if you do find tubers, they can be stored for replanting in the spring. To dig and store tubers follow these directions. First, allow frost to kill the top of the plant then cut back the stems and dig the tubers. Wash off any soil and then allow the tubers to dry. Wrap dry tubers in newspapers or pack them in peat moss. Label each tuber or group of tubers so you know what they are come spring. Store tubers in a dark, cool (35 to 45 F) place. Do not allow tubers to freeze. Deadheading will encourage additional blooming.
The seductive pairing of deep dark foliage and sunset red, semi-double blooms is hard to resist inDahlightful™ Sultry Scarlet. Unlike some Dahlias, the Dahlightful™ series keeps on producing flowers from early through late in the season so you’ll have color longer in the garden. Standing 20-30” tall, they make fantastic thrillers in combination containers and also look great planted en masse in the landscape.

I planted this a month ago and so far I'm disappointed. It has one small flower and overall the plant is only a few inches tall. Not what I would call a "thriller" by any means. It has all the right growing conditions so I'll give it a little more time to see if it improves before finding a replacement for it.Debbie ChietNapervilleIllinoisUnited States45 weeks ago
