|Home Depot had purple leaf dahalia yellow peony flower. ( No Name)They are not tall, I am wondering if these small/short type of dahalias are bulbs or would I collect seeds to grow them next year.|
It is so pretty I want to grow it next year. Buying it late in the season in my climate I will only be able to keep it outside probably only until late Sept early Oct. If it is a bulb I will bring in the pots like I do my other dahalias and keep it cool in the basement.
I do not store bulbs. I like to store plants/bulbs in their pots and set them out early Spring. I do not want to dig bulbs and replant.

|Yes, they are bulbs (tubers). Sometimes they are quite small and difficult to store over Winter. |
However, if you are bringing them in pot and all, you should have no problem.

|Thank you. It is the only way I have been able to keep all my tropicals alive. I found if I bring everything in without disturbing them and keep them in 40-60 degrees sprinkle a little water on top of the soil once a month or so everything survives and start to grow in the Spring.|

|These are the ones I picked up I want to save. |

Looks fine. Good size plant so tuber should be ok.
Maybe dead head it.
