A standout in back borders and cut-floral arrangements, Gitts Perfection is a dinnerplate-sized dahlia with delicate pink flowers that blend to white at the center. The depth and pronounced tips of each petal make it a stunning exhibition variety. It is easy to grow and deer tend to avoid it, so you can count on a bold and lovely display in summer. Plant in rich, well-drained soil with full sun exposure. To encourage the blooms to achieve their full dinnerplate size, and enjoy a more floriferous, bushy plant, remove spent flower heads and support stems where necessary.
