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.
This is a wonderful little Dahlia. Very attractive cut foliage topped with small red starry single (sometimes semi double) flowers on a wiry framework (not to dissimilar to that of a wild species Dahlia) we have tried this is various locations around the garden and it has always performed well.
Full sun to light shade.
Any soil type.
Pot tubers in spring, then plant out once risk of first frost is passed.
