One of the Gallery group of hybrid dahlias characterised by a freely branching habit resulting in a large number of flowers, which with some deadheading will continue to flower for months. These are all fully double which obviously provides more petals and therefore a greater mass of colour. Dahlia Art Deco has two tone flowers with the inside of the petals a warm apricot colour and the outside a browny orange hue. The combination is great. The flowers about 5" (13 cm) across with dark green foliage.
Tender. Store tubers dry until March, then pot up and grow with warmth to plant out in late May. They need planting in a sunny situation with good compost below them and regular dead heading in the late summer to encorage repeat flowering. Growing them initially as potted plants early in the season will give you a head start. In the winter they may need to be lifted and kept frost free, depending on the conditions.
