Insights

Just one of the extravagant blooms makes for an excellent cut flower display indoors where its elegant colour and shape can be appreciated. Extend the season with this dahlia, as it will flower prolifically from midsummer until the first frosts.

Details
  • Half Hardy
  • Flowering Period: July – November
Planting
  • Any fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Full Sun / Partial Shade
  • Plant outside after risk of frost has passed, 15cm deep, 60cm apart; or start off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring.
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.
