Product Information

The original and still in many opinions the best dark-leaved Dahlia, which created the trend for current breeding programs. The fine, almost fern like foliage is a mahogany purple colour, setting off the stunningly bright electric red flowers, which blaze away in high Summer and well into the Autumn frosts. A stunning and much loved perennial for height and wow factor!  Makes a lovely cut bloom for a late summer vase.

Care Information

Dahlias are tender tubers and do best when potted up initially in March or early April, into large pots (2 - 3L) filled with multi-purpose compost.
Placed in a light, frost-free place and kept moist, they'll quickly form bushy plants by the time the frosts have ended, ready to be planted out into the garden.
In the garden, dig a hole at least 30cm wide x 30cm deep for each one, spacing each tuber 75cm apart.
If you donít have anywhere to start them in pots, you can put the tubers straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over.
Once a fortnight, feed them with a liquid feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior plant feed. During dry periods, water at least once a week.
Dahlias should be deadheaded regularly to encourage more blooms and you will need to stake the plants to prevent the flowers from breaking the stems.
