Description

We walked into a huge trial field of dahlias this August and set ourselves the challenge of choosing the dahlia with the most impact from afar. It was the slightly crazy-looking 'Octopus Sparkle’ which stands super-tall, on long, straight stems with a galaxy of sparkly stars held high in the sky. This is a winner.

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.
