Mero Star dahlia tuber.
Metro Star is a vigorous dahlia that produces armloads of big blooms, month after month. The flower color is an irresistible swirl of raspberry, strawberry and grape with frosty white highlights. Gorgeous in the garden. This plant tends to have shorter stems- disbudding is recommended for longer stem length. Huge fluffy blooms.
- 3' plant
8-10" bloom size
Planting: Your tubers can go directly into the ground in the spring when the ground has warmed and there is little chance of frost. One good guideline is to plant in the same time frame as you would a tomato. If you want blooms as early as possible, you can start the tubers indoors in good light about a month before planting time. You will then have a small plant ready at planting time. Dahlias can be planted as late as mid-June in most parts of the country.
