Description

The perfect orange dahlia, exactly the colour of a pumpkin – neat, robust and floriferous. This is the best in this colour I've ever seen. It lasts very well as a cut flower too and flowers long and hard right up to the frosts.

Our dahlias:

  • are first class, healthy tubers – the largest and best you can buy.
  • come with full planting, spacing and cultivating instructions for beginner gardeners
  • tubers should be potted up when they arrive and be kept in a light, frost-free place until the frosts are over and then be planted into the garden.

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.
