Suitable for our new King, a nature-lover, these open-faced single and semi-double dahlias are the ones that butterflies love as they can reach the rich nectar at the centre of the flower. What I love about this collection is that the colours, in combination, are as seductive and attractive to us as the flowers are to the butterflies — a double win.
All dahlia flowers are edible, scatter their petals on salads for flavour, texture and colour.This collection contains 1 or 2 tubers, or 1 x 3 litre pot each of:
- Dahlia 'Blue Bayou'
- Dahlia 'Lou Farman'
- Dahlia 'Dad's Favourite'
- Dahlia 'Liquid Desire'
- Dahlia 'Skyfall'

Support with a stout stick, tie in every couple of weeks. In the South you can mulch deeply and overwinter them in the ground, alternatively, lift and overwinter your dahlias frost-free undercover.
