Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia produces striking 3-inch double crimson blooms with neatly arranged rays fading in color from the centers outward. This dwarf variety reaches 12 to 16 inches and flowers from midsummer until autumn’s first heavy frost. Birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds will adore this perennial as much as you will. 

If you enjoy making bouquets, Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia will delight you with showy “cut and come again” flowers from summer until fall. Cold hardy in zones 9-11, this dahlia originates from Mexico and parts of Central America. It has an upright, vigorous habit, and its lush emerald foliage is relatively disease and deer resistant. Add it to borders, beds or containers for instant color gratification. 

Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia Care

Plant Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia in full sun in average, well-draining soil. The soil's pH should be 6.5 to 7.0. Improve poor, compact soil with compost or well-rotted manure. Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia requires about an inch of water per week and a low-nitrogen fertilizer every 2 to 4 weeks during the flowering season. A low-nitrogen fertilizer will encourage more flower versus foliage production.

When maintaining this ornamental in a container, plant it in a general potting soil amended with peat moss. Water twice per week, providing about an inch of water. Apply a slow-release, low-nitrogen fertilizer every two weeks during the summer and fall. To support bigger and better blooms, deadhead old and withered blossoms. Dahlias typically do not open after cutting, so when trimming for bouquets, wait until the flowers have opened fully.

Dalaya® Vampire Dahlia Spacing

Space plants 12 to 14 inches apart when creating an accent in borders and beds. Plant with companion plants such as cosmos, artemisia, and sneezeweed to create a gorgeous cottage garden. Select a pot at least 12 inches in diameter to provide focal interest to a patio, balcony, or entryway. Cut the flower stems and add to lavender, sweet alyssum, and lilies to create classy summer and early fall bouquets.

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.
