We tried some new varieties of Dinner-plate dahlias this year and had outstanding results. The dinner-plate varieties were prolific bloomers with an average height of 4.5 feet. Bushes (not dinner-plate variety) also had many blooms, though the height was reserved to 12-14 inches.
Deep Red
Title: Deep Red
Description: It's called a dinner-plate variety, but our biggest one was about 4 inches across.
Red Star
Title: Red Star
Description: This one didn't get as much sun as the others and was a late bloomer. He was no less spectacular, and well worth the wait.
Lavender and White
Title: Lavender and White
Description: This variety was the most prolific, blooming first and producing large numbers of blossoms with an average of 4 inches across.
