Dwarf Dhalias

Last year I grew dwarf dhalia`s from seed and they all germinated. I left them in the soil over winter and now they have grown back.

I was led to believe that dwarf dhalia`s weren`t perennial!

So glad they have but can someone confirm.

    Most dahlias are perennial, they form tubers which will overwinter. Most bedding dahlias are grown from seed and are a fast growing type which will flower early and can thus be treated as annuals. As you have found, in a mild winter, they will survive to grow again. 

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • I know that dahlias are tubers but i researched dwarf dahlias and it said they were once flowering and would not come back the following year. So glad they did though! Thank you!
