Small growing variety. Good for the garden. Lots of flowers all summer.

Vigorous, fast growing, available in numerous flower types. This collarette dahlia gets its name from the red collars surrounded by 8 bright red ray florets. An outstanding addition to the flower border or container garden. An old fashioned favorite and superb cut flower. These showy flowers range 2 to 4 inches in diameter. Blooms spring and fall. Leaves are rich green to purplish green. Bulbs must be lifted from the ground in zones 7 and lower. Plant dahlia tubers once soil has warmed and there is little chance of frost.

Dahlias require a fertile, moist but well-drained soil, and a sunny, sheltered spot. The taller varieties need staking. In autumn, dig up the tubers and overwinter them in a frost-free place, such as a greenhouse or a shed. Bring them back into growth in early April, then plant out in the garden from May onwards.

Shipping Note:

Our Dahlias are all unique varieties propagated here are the nursery. We ship them as growing plants typically 10 to 15cm high, not as tubers. This way you are sure that your plants have the  best opportunity to grow and be successful.  Orders placed for Dahlias are only shipped/available starting in May as we protect them for you from frost until then.

It is important to only plant Dahlias when all chances of frost have passed.  When you place your order you will receive an email to confirm that we have received your order. You will then get a further email when your plants are either shipped or ready to collect from the Garden centre depending on what shipping option you picked at checkout time.
