Features

notes
One of the taller dahlias, the elegant Eveline Dahlia has magnificent globe-shaped double flowers of ivory-white with the centre and petal edges flushed lilac. This tuberous perennial is lovely combined with white flowers in the centre of a border, or in a pot. Image courtesy of Taylors Bulbs.
Insights

Classed as a ball dahlia, rounded with a flat top, the long-stemmed blooms of D. Eveline are pretty in flower arrangements, and last well when cut. Keep picking and deadheading dahlias to encourage even more flowers.

Details
  • Half-Hardy
  • Flowering Period: July– November
Planting
  • Any fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Full Sun / Partial Shade

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.
