Lisonette Dahlia

Description
A large cactus-type dinnerplate dahlia, Lisonette is not for the faint of heart. Vivid yellow blooms with red streaks and tips grow up to 8" across and are borne on sturdy 30-36" stems in midsummer and continue until frost. They'll pop in arrangements and add pizazz to containers when other plants are drooping in the summer heat. Planted in masses, Dahlias will fill gaps that develop in the perennial border, and make excellent potted plants (1 tuber in a 12" pot). They prefer full sun, though partial shade will work in the South, and they like rich soil and even moisture. With few pests or diseases to trouble them, these dahlias will keep blooming when other annuals and perennials peter out. They're long lived in arrangements too, lasting 7-10 days without fail. Easy-to-grow dahlias are not bothered by deer, rabbits or other garden pests, though bees and butterflies love them. Dahlia decorative ?Lisonette'

These favorite plants come in two basic types: compact bedding forms and tall border types. Both have upright stems and grow from tuberous roots. They come in an amazing range of colors and flower forms, from single, small, daisy-like blooms to huge, ruffled flowers up to eight inches across. Compact bedding dahlias are ideal for container gardens and for edging beds. Use the border types to add height and color to gardens in late summer to fall. Dahlias also make great cut flowers.
