Multi-colored Dahlia (Dahlia ‘Twyning’s Smartie’) tubers.多色大理花的球根.

Love this variety!  So cute and unique.  This tuberous tender perennial is very easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Single flowers with different colored petals of white, purple, wine red and violet, flowers bloom repeatedly from late spring to frost.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies and flowers are excellent for cuttings!  Mature size:4′-6′(H) X 2′-3′(W).  Easy to propagate by cuttings, tubers or division.  Even though it is suitable for growing in containers but it really is better in the ground for more flowers.

好喜歡這品種!  有獨特的可愛花色.  這塊根類不耐寒多年生草花真的很容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  單瓣的花朵同朵有不花色的花瓣. 或紫或紅或白或酒紅色或藍紫色.  花期極長,能從春末開到霜降.  花是吸引蜂蝶的蜜源,更是極佳的切花花材!  成熟株高4-6呎,寬幅2-3呎. 容易以扦插或分株/芽法來繁殖.  雖也適盆植但還是地植為佳,較能有數量高的花量.
