We have long loved ‘Blue Bayou’ and have been working with breeders and our Dutch suppliers to find more dahlia varieties with the same kind of feel. That’s the tale of this six, all anemone-flowered forms, looking as showy as doubles, yet every flower centre filled with nectar tubes, a flower within a flower and twice as beautiful with it.
All dahlia flowers are edible, scatter their petals on salads for flavour, texture and colour.This collection contains 1 or 2 tubers, or 1 x 3 litre pot each of:
- Dahlia 'Abigail'
- Dahlia 'Skyfall'
- Dahlia 'Sword Dance'
- Dahlia 'Poodle Skirt'
- Dahlia 'Rosie Raven'
This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

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.
