Description

A true show-stopping dahlia and one of my long-standing favourites. Mixed with other dahlias or planted with veg, it looks superb with cabbages and Kale 'Redbor' and is the real show-stopper in the autumn Oast garden.

All dahlia flowers are edible, scatter their petals on salads for flavour, texture and colour.

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.
