Happiness springs from the name Pippi and this summer the bright ‘Pippi’ dahlia will also bring smiles to your home. Selected as the Squak Mt. Dahlia of the Year, ‘Pippi’ features a large decorative bloom bursting with red and yellow that embodies the energy and warmth of summer. Sometimes speckled, sometimes striped, mostly swirled, each clump will produce a large 3-4’ tall, deer resistant plant with masses of flowers for a showy border or a stunning bouquet.
Dahlias need to be planted after all danger of frost is gone. We recommend the end of April. Plant dahlias in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. It is useful to put a stake in at planting time for support as the dahlia grows. Add a tablespoon of our ‘Bouquet’ fertilizer at planting time to insure prolific blooming.
Dahlias can be selected as dormant tubers in this season, which provides you with great value and selection. Visit Squak Mt. today to meet ‘Pippi’ as well many other summer blooming bulbs that can be planted soon.
