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 Mouveau has two toned flowers with the inner surface of the petals a lilac pink colour and the outer surface a richly deeper purple hue. It arose as a sport of Art Deco. 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.
Height 16" (40cm)
