(Dahlia 'Pooh')
DAL-ee-ah
Genus:  Dahlia
A charming choice, 'Pooh' has orange-red petals with gold and lemon-colored petal-like sepals. Plant this dahlia toward the back in a border, where its small flowers on tall stalks will be sure to stand out. -Alastair Gunn, Dahlias that deliver, Fine Gardening issue #121
Noteworthy Characteristics:  3.5-inch-wide, orange and yellow flowers.
Care:  Provide full sun, except in the South, where some shade is preferred, and well-drained soil. Pinching off the first flower bud promotes a bushier plant. Use strong stakes, placing the first one into the hole at planting time. Deadhead regularly.
Propagation:  Division in spring is preferred. Use a sharp knife to sever tubers ensuring that each division has at least one eye
Problems:  Slugs, snails, rabbits, earwigs, aphids.
