Electric Flash Dahlia’s are well valued for their large spiky florets. Flowering up to 47 in tall they are very easy to grow and provide a rewarding display with very little effort. Plant the tubers with the main growing tips just below the surface of the soil. Firm the soil around the tubers, being careful not to damage them.
Purple Gem' Dahlia is indeed a shining gem of the border. Its violet-pink blooms are packed with layers of slender, tapered petals that glow in the summer sun. A cactus-type dahlia, 'Purple Gem' is among the most-vibrant varieties on the market. It looks extra sassy when combined with yellow zinnias, blue cornflowers, and red salvias.
