The decorative dahlia has the honour of being called Flowerbulbs.com’s 2021 summer bulb of the year (even though it’s a tuber it’s categorized as a summer-flowering bulb). One of 12 groups of dahlias, the decorative dahlia is a popular variety due to its size and striking colours.
This plant has slender stems with oval leaves, and “ray flowers” that are wide, flat, and have round or pointed tips. They exist in short to tall varieties, ranging in height from 20 to 60 inches.
Since they have such long stems, they make for a wonderful cut flower perfect for tall vases. The bright burst of colour is sure to brighten any bouquet for Random Gifts of Flowers, and the cutting of the flower will encourage even more blooms on the dahlia plant.
