Pleated petals and profuse production, the Dahlia is one of the more famous garden plants. Growing from tubers, these stunners won’t make it year round in the soil of Alaska, but you can dig up their roots in the fall and keep them inside and replant them in the spring. Preferring full sun and warm soil, I would wait until June to plant unless the spring has been exceptionally warm. You can also jump start them by planting them in pots or planters inside to get them established before transplanting them outside in the summer. While a little bit of extra work for long term results, treating the Dahlia as an annual is still an amazing way to get breath taking flowers growing in your garden or on your porch in pots and planters.
