  • water dropWater

    Dahlias, including the 'Hamari Accord' variety, require consistent moisture to thrive, but they are also sensitive to overwatering. The best method is to water deeply, allowing water to reach the roots, which promotes strong root development. Typically, watering should occur two to three times per week, providing about 1-2 gallons of water per plant each time, depending on weather conditions and soil drainage. During hot, dry periods, you may need to water more frequently, but always check the soil moisture first—it should be moist but not soggy. Reduce watering frequency as the weather cools and the plant prepares for dormancy.

  • sunLight

    Dahlias like 'Hamari Accord' perform best in full sun, which means they should be placed in a spot where they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day. The ideal lighting condition is morning sunlight with some protection from harsh afternoon sun, especially in hotter climates. However, they can tolerate full sun all day as long as they are well-watered and the soil stays moist.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Dahlias, including the 'Hamari Accord,' prefer temperatures ranging from 60°F to 70°F during the day and 50°F to 60°F at night. They can survive a maximum temperature of up to 90°F provided they have adequate water, and a minimum temperature no lower than 50°F, as cold temperatures can damage the plant. Dahlias are not frost-tolerant, and freezing temperatures will kill the plant, so it's crucial to lift tubers after the first frost if you're in an area with cold winters.

  • scissorsPruning

    Dahlias, such as 'Hamari Accord,' benefit from regular pruning to encourage bushiness and more blooms. Pinch out the growing tips when the plant is about 12-16 inches tall to promote branching. Remove spent flower heads (deadheading) to stimulate continuous blooming. Pruning should be done throughout the blooming season, typically starting in midsummer and continuing until the first frost. The best time for major pruning is early in the growing season, while deadheading can be done as needed.

  • bambooSoil

    Dahlias prefer a well-draining soil with rich organic matter and a neutral to slightly acidic pH of around 6.5 to 7.0. A good soil mix for Dahlias includes two parts garden soil, one part peat moss, and one part perlite to ensure proper drainage.

  • plantRepotting

    Dahlias should be repotted annually, usually in the spring after the danger of frost has passed and when new growth begins to appear.

    Dahlias thrive best in moderate humidity conditions; they do not require any special humidity levels, but they should not be kept in overly dry environments.

  • circleLife cycle

    The life of the Dahlia 'Hamari Accord', commonly known as Dahlia, begins when a tuber is planted in the soil after the last frost, in a well-draining area with plentiful sunlight. The tuber then sprouts and a young shoot emerges from the ground, rapidly developing into a full-grown plant with a sturdy stem and lush foliage. Throughout the growing season, usually from mid-summer through early fall, Dahlias produce vividly colored, intricate flowers, attracting pollinators to the garden. After blooming, as the colder months arrive, the above-ground plant starts to wither while the tuber beneath the soil goes dormant to survive the winter. Dahlias are perennials in warmer climates but are often treated as annuals in cooler regions; if so, the tubers are dug up before the first frost and stored in a cool, dry place until the next planting season. In the spring, the stored tubers should be replanted to continue the cycle.

  • sproutPropogation

    • Propogation time


    • Dahlia 'Hamari Accord', often known simply as Dahlia, can be propagated most effectively through division, which is best done in the spring. This involves separating the tuberous roots when they are beginning to sprout. Gardeners usually wait until the eye growth on the tuber is visible, ensuring each division has at least one eye from which a new plant will grow. Divisions should include a piece of the original tuber and stem base. The cut surfaces are often allowed to dry for a day or two to form a callus, reducing the risk of rot. The divisions are then planted directly into the garden, typically around 4 to 6 inches (approximately 10 to 15 centimeters) deep and spaced about 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 centimeters) apart to allow for the full growth of the new plants.
