Product Description

An impressive garden Dahlia, 'Lavender perfection' is still considered to be one of the best decorative Dahlias currently available to gardeners.

The huge, luxurious, soft lavender-pink flowers are up to 25cm (10in) wide and are carried on 1m (3ft 3in) tall stems, making the classic Dahlia 'Lavender Perfection' a really striking feature plant.

Often referred to as a 'dinner-plate dahlia' they're ideal in borders or in a large container on the patio, plus the fabulous blooms are also magnificent as a cut flower in a vase or in bouquets.

The gorgeous plants are perfect for cottage gardens, where the fully double, lilac flowers and lush, dark green leaves are especially good when paired with other traditional garden favourites such as roses, phlox and delphiniums.

Easy to grow and perfect for beginner gardeners, dahlias need little maintenance apart from regular deadheading and staking to prevent the large heads from weighing down the stems.

Dahlias do best in a sunny spot in a sheltered position to protect them from the wind, where they'll attract a whole host of friendly insects including butterflies ladybirds and hoverflies.

Supplied as 5 x tubers ready for potting-up or planting out once all risk of frost has passed.

Plant Information

Top Tips

When the plants flower, you will notice one large central bud and two, smaller side buds. You can either remove the side buds to get one large flower or keep them to get three flowers which will be smaller.

Dahlias are fairly hardy, although frost-tender perennials and during mild winters they will overwinter successfully under a heavy mulch. However, we do recommend where possible that tubers are lifted in the autumn and dried upside down before storing in a frost-free place over the winter. Stored tubers can then be started back into growth the following spring before planting back out.

If you find that earwigs are a problem, the organic way to control them is to position pots filled with straw upside down on canes spaced around your dahlias.

Care Guide

  • 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 don’t 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.
