Dalina® Grande Cancun is a hybrid Dahlia that has burgundy flowers with white tips. It has 2–3-inch fully double flowers that make lovely cut flowers. This Dahlia blooms continuously from spring through the first frost.  Deer do not like this Dahlia, but butterflies and hummingbirds love it.

Dahlias are originally from the high elevations of Mexico and Central America.  The plant looks nice whether grown in the landscape as a mixed border or as a specimen plant. The bright flowers make it the main event in a container.

Dalina Grande Cancun Dahlia Care

This Dahlia needs to be fertilized regularly with a water-soluble fertilizer.  The flowers will keep coming if you do not deadhead, but the plant will look tidier if you do.  Dahlias need an average amount of water and lots of sun to grow well.  The soil should be well drained because they do not like wet feet.

Since Dahlias are originally from Mexico and Central America, they don’t do cold weather very well.  Dahlias will grow indoors in a pot during the winter, then can be placed outdoors after the danger of frost is over.

Dalina Grande Cancun Dahlia Spacing

If you want to grow Dahlia in a pot, you will need to get one that is three gallons or larger to counterbalance its height, which can be up to 18 inches.  If growing in the landscape, space the plant 12-15 inches apart so when it spreads out, up to 18 inches, it won’t be too crowded.

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.
