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, but 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.
A fantastic small Dahlia from our Dark leaved National Collection. This simple dahlia is perfect for small gardens, the front edge of a border or patios and containers, as it doesn't get any larger than 60cm. Producing an abundance of pink/lilac pink single flowers above dark foliage (which gives an amazing contrast) perfect for pollinators.
Full sun to light shade.
Any soil type.
Pot tubers in spring, then plant out once risk of first frost is passed.
