Features

notes
Ideal for adding a splash of colour to a mixed border, Dahlia Arbatax is a stunning variety that bears decorative blooms of white petals, delicately edged with lilac-pink tinges. A must for the summer garden, the colour deepens to a richer, more opulent tone as the flower matures. Image courtesy of Taylors Bulbs.
Insights

Classed as a decorative dahlia, D. Arbatax is striking in flower arrangements, and these blooms last well when cut. Keep picking and deadheading dahlias to encourage even more blooms!

Planting

Care

Feed weekly, and water well in hot weather. The tall flower stems will require staking and tying in, but this is well worth the trouble for the magnificent display that they produce. Larger flowers can be obtained by pinching out the side buds and just keeping the terminal buds. Lift the tubers once the foliage has died back and store in a frost-free location in slightly moist sand or compost.
