DescriptionThe biggest and the brightest dahlias shipped direct to you from Holland
These exotic giant dahlias would steal the show in any garden! And you will love them in your garden. Each #1 clump produces huge, vibrant 6-9" flowers on a plant that grows 3-4' tall. The blooms are magical, like giant, glowing garden torches waving in the breeze. We've selected 5 of the most spectacular dahlias ever grown in Holland for the Breck's Classic Dinnerplate Dahlia Collection. For a limited time, a select group of Breck's Preferred Customers will have the chance to plant these amazing dahlias in their own gardens in the spring.
Now, you can easily create this same enchanting beauty in your own garden with these majestic hybrids that perform reliably with so little attention. You don't need a green thumb to grow these improved Dinnerplate Dahlias. They are garden tested, easy to plant and deliver maximum enjoyment with a minimum of care.
An Extremely Long Blooming Season
Breck's giant Classic Dinnerplate Dahlias celebrate long, warm days in the sun! They begin flowering in early summer and keep on blooming well into fall—until the lingering frosts tell you winter is on its way.
Plant these tall, dazzling Dinnerplate Dahlias in your garden against a fence, wall or hedge. Use them at the back of a flower bed or border planting, surrounded by lower-growing dahlias or perennials. Or plant them "en masse" in a random fashion, 2-3' apart for a brilliant display. The 6-9" flowers will attract attention from a block away.
Classic Dinnerplate Dahlias Make Incredible Bouquets
Bring the colours of paradise into your home! Float one beautifully composed giant dahlia blossom in a shallow bowl of water to create a dramatic centrepiece. Or create a breathtaking arrangement of dahlias in a large vase. Use dahlias in both summer and fall flower arrangements. They look great all by themselves or mixed with other flowers, berries and fruits.
Why Breck's Dahlias Are Better Than The Rest
Breck's dahlias are grown in Holland, in the heart of the world-famous bulb district. Our staff of experts spends the entire year working with the leading Dutch growers, from selecting the finest, garden-tested varieties, through every phase of production. At harvest time, we individually inspect each dahlia clump, and we ship you only the cream of the crop. Other companies often divide the clumps to sell each tuber individually. Not Breck's. We leave them intact with at least 4 to 6 ready-to-grow tubers, assuring you of vigorous plants with lots of flowers! Even gardeners in Holland cannot obtain finer, healthier dahlia clumps for their own gardens.
It's Easy To Grow Great Dinnerplate Dahlias
We'll ship your dahlias in the spring, at the perfect time for planting in your area. Plant them after the danger of frost has passed. All you need to succeed is a sunny place (at least a half day of full sun) with well-drained soil and protection from strong winds. Then just keep your dahlias watered if rain doesn't do the job. Your dahlias will thrive and bloom profusely all season long. When frost lingers on the ground, you can lift your dahlia clumps for winter storage. In spring, divide the multiplying tubers for additional plantings, or share them with your envious neighbours and friends!
