Description

Huge pink-purple saucer flowers, which provide excellent landing pads for garden butterflies. Like a great, graceful butterfly itself, this was frequently visited by these pollinators in our trial.

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.
