Water directly at the base of the plant to keep moisture off the foliage and flowers. It's important to avoid overwatering as Dahlias do not like waterlogged soil. A good soaking could range from 0.5 to 1 gallon of water per plant, depending on the size and the weather conditions. During the hot summer months, you may need to water more frequently to maintain consistent moisture.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Dahlias, including the Happy Single Princess, begin their lifecycle as tubers planted after the last frost when the soil has warmed adequately. Upon planting, they start a vegetative growth stage wherein shoots emerge from the tubers, developing into stems and leaves. As the plant matures, it enters a blooming stage during the summer months, producing distinctive flowers with a single row of petals surrounding a central disc, usually attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies. Following pollination, the Dahlia may produce seeds, although many hybrids are grown exclusively from tubers due to their specific characteristics. As temperatures drop in autumn, the above-ground foliage of the Dahlia dies back, signaling the beginning of dormancy for the tubers. Throughout winter, the tubers remain dormant underground, ready to restart the lifecycle when conditions become favorable in the following spring.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The most popular method of propagating Dahlia Happy Single Princess is through dividing tuberous roots. This is typically done in spring when the risk of frost has passed and soil temperatures have risen. To propagate, first carefully lift the clump of dahlia tubers from the ground using a fork, minimizing damage to the tubers. Wash the soil off and allow them to dry. Look for natural divisions and cut the tubers with a sharp, sterile knife, ensuring each division has at least one eye, which is a point of new growth. Leave the cuts to dry and callus over for a day or two to prevent rotting. Once this is done, the tuberous roots can be planted about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) deep in well-draining soil, with the eyes facing upward, and spaced about 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 centimeters) apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth.
