Dahlia Care

Dahlia Dalaya Fireball is a beautiful Dahlia variety with fiery red, orange, and yellow blooms. Fireball Dahlias are early to flower in the spring, producing blooms in abundance throughout the season. Native to Mexico, Dahlias enjoy warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine, making them great for sunny patios and balconies. As a bonus, Fireball Dahlias’ blossoms may attract pollinators such as butterflies to your garden.

How to care for your Dahlia

Use these instructions to care for a Dahlia. This guide will tell you how to water a Dahlia; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

Dahlia Dalaya Fireball


Dahlias will grow best in full sun, where they can receive at least 6–8 hours of direct sunlight.


Provide your Dahlias with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely; water just before the soil is dry. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during rainy times, less watering may be needed.


Fertilize once a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.


If you notice your Dahlias starting to get leggy or stretched out, feel free to trim the flowers and foliage back to promote growth. They will branch out and rebloom as a result. Be sure to fertilize regularly.
