This Halloween jack-o-lantern decoration has a glass jar inside, holding the floral arrangement.  I'm always on the look out for decorations I can use for them.

The fall dinner plate dahlias are the perfect flower to use in this October arrangement.  Used are rosy purple "Thomas Edison," yellow-orange "October Sky," and red "Envy."

Dinner plate dahlias take approximately 90 days from the time of planting to harvest. However, the wait is well worth the wait!

Nurseries have plants already leafed-out to plant in your garden, but I always buy the tubers and plant in spring, after the chance of frost of over. For zone 6, that's the day after Mother's Day.
