Temple of Beauty
A very fitting name! - this absolute beauty is a must have in your Summer garden.
The rose, wine, ivory light yellow coloring translates into flowers that work with a wide range of neighboring shades - fantastic in the garden and the vase!
Blooms are 15-18cm wide, and will reach around 1.1m in height.
Decorative Dahlia’s are well known for their large flowers with soft rounded florets. Flowering up to 120 cm tall they are very easy to grow and provide a rewarding display with very little effort. Plant the tubers with the main growing tips just below the surface of the soil. Firm the soil around the tubers, being careful not to damage them.
Some taller varieties may need staking and an occasional spray with a fungicide is beneficial to control powdery mildew. To prolong the flowering, pluck off old flowers. This encourages further flowering. Cut back spent foliage to ground level each Autumn.
