@bluejay1025 There are Dahlias that range in color from beige to peach-pink tones; most Dahlias start blooming in mid to late July and continue flowering until frost. Unfortunately we don't have any left in those colors, but feel free to browse our website to see other varieties.

@lucysnoopy57 Unfortunately if the tuber (root) fell off the Dahlia, it will not grow.

@wildflowerchef We advise planting the Dahlia crowns four inches below soil level, and spaceing the tubers 15-24" apart-in any direction.

please tell us how deep to plant, how far apart the plants should be both side to side and length to length.

Try staking when planting the tuber. Either use the permanent stake so you can tie the stems to the stake as they grow OR use a temporary stake when planting to 1) mark where the tuber is 2) replace the temporary stake with the permanent one with no fear of spearing the tubers.
