Growing Dahlias In Arizona

20 July 2022

This post is to show you how I grow dahlias. Now I have to let you know that I have grown dahlias successfully in Sonoita but not too good in Tucson.

My small flower farm is in Sonoita but I live in Tucson. So I decided to plant 15 tubers I got in the mail in some pots and leave them here in Tucson to see how they will grow. Out of the 15, only 3 bloomed. I did keep all the plants, left them in the pots over winter, and come this Spring 2022 they all grew back and I transplanted them in Sonoita.

Perhaps planting them where they will get full morning sun and with the shifting of the sun give them afternoon shade might do the trick.
