About Buttercup - Dahlia Bulbs (Pompon)


Seed Type Tuber
Plant Type Decorative

We found Dahlia Buttercup Pompon to be absolutely delightful as it stole the show in our test gardens. Despite its tiny one inch bloom in the softest shade of yellow, it confidently held its ground amidst larger, more extravagant flowers. Gardeners adore using Buttercup as a lovely accent in their dahlia gardens, but we recommend giving them the spotlight by planting a dedicated border just for them. Standing at a modest three feet in height, we were enamored by how this small yet mighty powerhouse produced an abundance of blossoms on robust stems, captivating our hearts in the process.
