Dahlia 'Grande Toluca'
For planting in front of the Dahlia garden this year we are going to try some Dahlina Dahlias. They are from the Proven Winners people.
We have never grown this plant before so I will have to report back later as to its performance. From a potted standpoint they seem quite beautiful and almost like a smaller version on your typical Decorative Dahlia with the same vivid colors. I was lucky to get six varieties.
The Dahlinas come in three different series and as far as I can tell the series are mini, midi and grande. All the plants I got were in the Grande® Series. These two hybrids reach a final height of 18 to 24 inches. They should prove to be interesting and will probably be a lot more cooperative than the Cosmos we usually use in front of the Dinnerplate and Decorative Dahlias.
