Dahlia Dinnerplate Thomas Edison

(19 reviews) Write a Review

The dahlia Thomas Edison was bred here in the U.S. and first introduced back in 1929. It is still the considered the best purple dinnerplate dahlia on the market. The plants are robust and produce tons of flowers all season long. A good choice for the back of a perennial border and a must for cutting gardens.

    This Dahlia is a total stunner. Big and beautiful flowers for a first-year plant. It completely exceeded my expectations.

    This was the first time growing them from Tubers. I wasn't sure if I planted them right, but I did! I loved walking out to my garden and watching them bloom all summer long. I live in La Jolla California and I grow flowers just for pleasure.

    I received 3 Thomas Edison Dahlias free of charge from Longfield Gardens as a special bonus to a new order. They were a bit slower to grow in the beginning than other dahlias I purchased but once they took off, there was no stopping them. Mine grew to about 6 feet with the most beautiful 6" flowers - very dark purple when in the shade changing to a luminous purple once the sun hits them. This dahlia does not form a dense shrub and definitely needs staking.

    Easy to grow, abundance of blooms, need to stake, beautiful color. One of my favorites to have in the garden as the color goes so well with other dahlias in a bouquet or just out in the garden.

    Such a brilliant dahlia! It was a part of so many arrangements for events as well as individual cuttings from people coming out to get cut flowers from my gardens. Definitely, one of the best!

    The color was good. The size of the blooms were the smallest of all my dahlias. Their stem is not as strong as some others. This was my best year for all flowers, but especially my dahlias.
