Dahlia 'Peaches'

These remind me of those spectacular hand-blown paper weights you see in Venice, contrasting colour moulded in pleats down the globe’s sides.

Description

I adore these because they remind me of those spectacular hand-blown paper weights you see in Venice, contrasting colour moulded in pleats down the globe’s sides. My Granny used to have a paper weight like this on her desk. Stunning!

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.
