If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you probably want to take advantage of the amazing growing conditions available for all kinds of beautiful plants.

Dahlias are fantastic for a low-maintenance garden that’s full of color. There are thousands of types in a huge array of colors and textures. Some blooms may be button-sized, others are as big as your head. Really! They love full sunshine and thrive in moist, but well-drained soil. They can grow up to 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide, in zones 5 to 8. They make lovely cut flowers too, and are fantastic for weddings.
