Description

So, embrace the allure of Rocco and let it unleash its brilliance in your garden, turning heads and inspiring awe with its remarkable beauty.
 

Planting Conditions

When it comes to planting, Dahlia Rocco thrives in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. It prefers full sun to partial shade, with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal growth and abundant flowering. Selecting a location that provides some protection from strong winds will help prevent damage to the substantial blooms.

Watering & Feeding

Regular watering is crucial to keep Dahlia Rocco healthy and hydrated. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, ensuring the water reaches the root zone. However, be cautious not to overwater, as dahlia tubers are prone to rot in excessively wet conditions. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant will help retain moisture, suppress weed growth, and maintain a cool root environment.

General Care

To encourage continuous blooming, it is recommended to deadhead faded flowers regularly. Removing spent blooms not only enhances the overall appearance of the plant but also redirects its energy towards producing new blooms rather than seed production.
