Description

I spotted this in a breeder's trial field from over a hundred potential new varieties and brought it back to trial for a couple of years at Perch Hill. It is my current number one favourite, rich and soft at the same time and with a good vase life.

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.
