Dahlias are tuberous rooted perennial and is classified into a dozen types. Plants with heavy bloom and big size need more care, extra manure, frequent watering and proper staking.The many types of dahlia like a fertile, well-drained soil with a constant supply of moisture. Mulch the bed and avoid giving the plants high nitrogen. On poor sites the plants are leggy. Best growth occurs in full sun but the plants tolerate partial shade. Do not plant dahlias until the soil has warmed up as the roots rot in cold, wet soil. Tall varieties may need a support stake installed at planting time. Removal of side buds gives larger flowers. Remove the old flowers as they fade to promote blooming. Dahlias do not tolerate high summer temperatures so may not be suited for southern most regions.

Use 

Large varieties are spaced 2 1/2-feet-apart, pompoms 2-feet-apart, and dwarfs 12- to 18-inches-apart. Most are planted 6 to 10 inches deep. When shoots are 3 or 4 feet tall, thin them to the three most vigorous shoots. Frosted plants are cut down to 4 to 6 inches above ground level. Dig the roots and allow them to dry. Cover them with sand or cocopeat and store them at 10°C. 

Dahlias are propagated by division or cuttings. For cuttings, use new shoots and make cuttings 3 to 4 inches long. Remove the basal leaves and insert the cuttings in sand, perlite, or vermiculite. The root clumps are divided in the spring. Each division needs part of the old stem on it.
