Featuring big, bicolor blossoms and emerald-toothed foliage, Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia adds long-lasting color to beds and borders from late spring until fall’s first frost. Blood-orange flat petals surround a bushy, bright-yellow center. This anemone dahlia, also known as Dahlia hybrida ‘Baldenire’, is easy to grow and low maintenance. Cold hardy in zones 9 to 11, this ornamental loves sunshine and heat. With its compact size, it’s an ideal option for containers.

Growing upright, this Mexican original works hard all summer to provide pristine flowers. It offers three full seasons of interest, whether planted in a container or garden bed for extra color. It is disease and deer resistant for stress-free growing. Use it to add focal interest to landscapes, patios, porches, and decks, or cut several of its flower stems to bring a little sunshine indoors.  

Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia Care

To ensure Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia produces as many blooms as possible, plant it in full sun. It prefers rich, moist, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.5 to 7.0. To improve the soil’s nutrient content, add compost or cow manure. Dahlias require moderate amounts of water; an inch or so per week should suffice. During the blooming season, fertilize biweekly with a low-nitrogen formula, such as a 5-10-10 (N-P-K).

Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia does not typically require frequent pruning other than trimming dead foliage and flowers. Deadheading throughout the flowering season will encourage the plant to produce more blossoms. 

Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia is well suited for growing in containers. Select a pot with at least a 2.5 quart capacity. Fill the pot with an all-purpose potting mix and add extra perlite for drainage. 

Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia Spacing

Space dahlia plants 12 to 14 inches apart. Plant Dalaya® Fireball Dahlia in borders, beds, and containers. Since this dahlia variety attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees, plant it in a pollinator garden with salvia, bee balm, cosmos, and coneflower. Trim blossoms to make a fireball bouquet to brighten your kitchen or entryway.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
