The dinnerplate dahlias are also called the super dahlia or the giant dahlia. They are by far the most popular variety. The dinnerplate-sized flowers with a high fluffy content. Take one dahlia of this class and you've made your point. No one can ignore it: wow, what flowers they are! They grow at least 20 centimetres big and can hide an entire face.

Dinner plate dahlias are among the longer-growing dahlia varieties and need extra support once the plant starts growing. One option is a bamboo stick from the garden centre. With a binding wire, knot the growing plant a little further on the stick each time. Rubber binding wire is the most gentle for the plant.

TIP: Put the support in the pot at the same time as planting the tuber, then you can be sure that you won't damage or even puncture the tuber later on.
