Opening pale pink these are big flowered beauties, fading as they age to the palest pearly pink. Because of the weight and size of the flower these are more likely to need staking in windier sites.

Planting Instructions

Tender. Store tubers dry until late March, then pot up and grow with warmth to plant out in late May. If intending planting directly into the garden wait till mid May, storing these tubers in dry, frost free conditions till then. They need planting 12-15"(30-40cm) apart, in a sunny situation with good compost below them and regular dead heading in the late summer to encourage 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. Dahlia tubers vary considerably in their form, some do not produce tidy tubers - as long as there are tubers attached even small ones will grow good plants.
