A designer’s DREAM! Early bloomer, loads and loads of buttery blooms all season long. Plant and stems are on the short side but plentiful in bloom count and just right for any kind of wedding work. Kona is our work horse that saved us many times when we needed a ton of blooms for that last-minute arrangement request. And as additional perks, produces great tubers too.

Planting Tips for Dahlia Kona

Choosing a location

Dahlias will grow almost anywhere and are very forgiving, easy to grow garden plants. They will thrive in full sun but can tolerate some partial shade – the more sun, the bigger the flowers. Try to select a location that receives at least 6 hours of sun and is sheltered from the wind. Dahlias like to grow in well-drained and slightly acidic soil. If soil holds standing water for more than 24 hours after a heavy rain, it is normally a sign of poor drainage.

 

Planting

Dahlia Kona can be planted safely after the last frost date. Watch the weather forecast closely to make sure conditions won’t be too cold or too wet. Plant your Dahlias outdoors when the air is consistently at least 50 degrees overnight. This generally means the soil in your garden is about that same temperature and that’s perfect.

Space your Kona tubers so they have enough room for air circulation. Allow 20″-24″ between bulbs to avoid overcrowding. For best performance, plant taller varieties behind the shorter varieties so the shorter ones don’t get shaded out by the taller stalks, causing them to produce fewer and smaller blooms.

 

Pre-sprouting

In cooler climates, Kona Dahlias can be planted indoors, 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Fill 1 or 2 gallon flowerpots or garden containers with slightly moist growing mix. Place the tubers in the flowerpots or containers with the sprouts or eyes facing up, cover with 2 inch of potting soil and set then in a warm place with good light and water sparingly.
