Dahlia 'Fashion Monger'

Fashion Monger Dahlia, Collarette Dahlias


Dahlia 'Fashion Monger' adds sparkles to the summer garden with its rich carmine-red flowers adorned with white tips and a ring of soft yellow, tiny petals at their heart. Facing skyward, the delicate flowers, 3-4 in. across (7-10 cm), stand up nice and straight, even when it rains. Blooming massively from midsummer until frost, this charming Collarette dahlia grows up to 3-4 ft. (90-120 cm) and is an excellent choice for beds and borders, patio, deck, or balcony.

  • Best flowering occurs in full sun, but light shade will be welcomed in hot summer areas.
  • Provide consistent moisture during the growing season and do not allow soils dry out. Plant in a sheltered location to protect your dahlias from strong winds.
  • Best in groups of 5 for best visual effect. Deadhead spent flowers to promote growth of additional flower buds.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
  • If you live in a cool area (hardiness zones 3-7) and you want to save your dahlia bulbs, or more precisely, your dahlia tubers for next spring, you may dig them up before the first frost and store them over winter before replanting them next spring. Store them in boxes, covered with moistened sand in a cool, dark, frost-free place where temperature remains between 45-50 °F (7-10°C).
  • This Dahlia is a member of the Collarette Dahlias, which present small to medium flowers with large flat ray petals surrounding an open center. Within the ray and surrounding the center is a wreath of shorter petals, often of a different color: this forms the “collar”. They make real eye-catchers!
