'Show 'n' Tell' is a crazy dinner plate Dahlia with pointed, twisty petals in bright orange-red with yellow tips.
'Show 'n' Tell' is a fully double, dinner plate Dahlia that produces very fuzzy looking blooms with pointed, twisty petals in bright orange-red with yellow tips. Looks kind of like a fiery supernova ready to blow. The flowers are fully double and up to 8-10 inches wide borne atop strong, sturdy 3 foot tall burgundy stems. Dahlia are hardy to coastal BC's winter temperatures but not to winter wet. Protect from rain in free-draining soils, plant in pots that can be moved and protected, or lift and store in a cool, dry, frost free location. They are moderately deer resistant.
