Reviewed 19th August 2016 by Queen of Carthage

Halfway through August, and I'm still waiting for my Blanc y Verde to flower. All my other dahlias are huge and producing prodigious quantities of flowers (including the other tuber that I purchased new this year) but the Blanc y Verde has yet to produce anything. Maybe it will do better next year? But so far, quite a disappointment.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your feedback. The Dahlia 'Blanc y Verde' is an unusual variety of dahlia, with green bracts that develop throughout the stems and the flowers are a lot smaller than other dahlia varieties. We would however, have expected the plant to be in flower by now, so it might be that we need to look into this further for you. The tuber will grow again next year and might well flower better but if you would like to discuss it further with our horticultural adviser please contact plantadvice@sarahraven.com or call 0345 092 0283 and we will assist you further."
