Dahlia's are tuberous perennials that are considered half hardy and may need lifting, planting in a sheltered location and/or mulching in order to over-winter successfully. Their long flowering period (generally July till the first frost) and the generosity of flowers has made them worth the effort to gardeners for centuries.
Dahlia 'Fire Mountain' a tuberous perennial with foliage which is almost black! this has to be one, if not my favourite of the dark leaved dahlias, rich blood red decorative flowers from august till the first frosts, although a little later into flower I would grow this variety just for the foliage alone.
Full sun to light shade.
Any soil type.
Pot tubers in spring, then plant out once risk of first frost is passed.
