Description

A classic border dahlia with beautiful, glossy, rich chocolate-coloured leaves, contrasting to orange and ochre flowers. And the flowers! This is covered in more flowers, for longer, than almost any other dahlia we’ve ever trialled.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

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.
