Description

The most perfect small or even mini dahlia. So often small scale makes dahlias uptight to the point of ugliness, but not ‘Aruna’ which is luscious and rich, way beyond its size. This really is truly brilliant for a window box (see it with Petunia Tidal Wave Red Velours’ in our Magnificent Merlot Pot Collection).

Care Tips

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.
