With neat rows of tightly in rolled, light orange petals, the Dahlia ‘Sylvia’ spirals delicately into a pumpkin-coloured ball; an illuminating variety to add to your display. 
Insights

Classed as a ‘Pompom Dahlia’, this tender perennial features small, immaculately spherical blooms. Accommodating an amassment of numerous, tightly rolled petals that curve inwards, these dahlias are known for their precise structures that form a delicate, whimsical aesthetic.

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. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage more buds. Lift the tubers once the foliage has died back and store in a frost-free location in moist sand or compost. Find out more about over-wintering your dahlias with our helpful guide .
