Free first class shipping on seed orders over $35- use code: BISEEDS

500 mg (~50 seeds)

You can grow breathtaking dahlias from seed and enjoy them year after year. This very tall blend of eye-popping colors is especially suited for the back of the garden, and the long, sturdy stems make them great for cut flowers. Blooms appear about 90 days from sowing, so you can enjoy beautiful blooms come summer. Perennial in USDA zones 7–10; in colder climates, at season’s end, tubers can be lifted and stored indoors over winter. Attracts butterflies and other pollinators. Use the edible, mild-flavored petals to garnish salads, desserts, and drinks. (The flower’s central disk, while edible, can be bitter.) Dahlia pinnata tubers are edible, with a flavor somewhat similar to raw jicama. The flavor of the crisp, juicy tubers is bland to mildly sweet.

    Trying to be fair and objective; After complaining about the free shipping description, I did get free shipping. Is this a “Red Venus Fly Trap “Akai Ryu” VFT”? Time will tell. This plant looks like the picture, after a month of no care. No traps, no new growth. It is in serious need of TLC and hopefully will recover with proper care. I bought it for it being a different variety, but have gotten far better plants at Walmart for a third of the price.
