1 review for Dahlia Wine Eyed Jill

  1. Elizabeth Fike (verified owner)

    My Wine Eyed Jill has been a blooming machine. The blooms are a perfect size for arrangements. My blooms have more of a lavender/pink color than apricot, but I definitely see the apricot/peach color at the base of each petal. I have a feeling this one’s coloring can be variable with weather and soil conditions. My plant is tall and slim, definitely requires good support. The blooms really do look great with many different colors. So far, Wine Eyed Jill has been one of, if not THE most productive dahlia I’m growing.

Planting Tips for Dahlia Wine Eyed Jill

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 Wine Eyed Jill 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 Wine Eyed Jill tubers so they have enough room for air circulation. Allow 16″-20″ 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, Wine Eyed Jill 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 tuber(s) in the flowerpots or containers with the sprouts or eyes facing up, and cover with 2 inch of potting soil. Set the flower pots or containers in a warm place with good light and water sparingly.
