Description

The Colarette group of dahlias are on the up for their clear open flower structure, good vase life and richness of both nectar and pollen. Amongst this group, we particularly love 'Mary Eveline’ for the richness of its flower colour and plushness of its petal texture.

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.
