Dahlia's are tuberous perennials that are considered half hardy and may need lifting, planting in a sheltered location and/or mulching in order to over-winter successfully. Their long flowering period (generally July till the first frost) and the generosity of flowers has made them worth the effort to gardeners for centuries.
Ball-flower with lovely soft pink flowers type held well above the foliage and great for cutting. Originally bred for exhibition, it now makes a worthy addition to any border, but particularly a cutting border. You might find this odd, but we grow it alongside kale in our kitchen garden, as the colours and foliage compliment each other brilliantly.
Full sun to light shade.
Any soil type.
Pot tubers in spring, then plant out once risk of first frost is passed.
