Regular price $5.50

Shipping calculated at checkout.



A popular variety with florists and flower arrangers which produces quantities of large double and semi-double flowers with distinctive spiky petals. A tall dahlia that showcases an array of colours and bi-colours. These perennials can be sensitive to cold weather, so if they are not grown in a warm climate it is best to dig the tubers up for storage or to grow them as annuals. 

  • Good for cut flowers 

PLEASE NOTE: When growing Dahlias from seed do not disturb plant for two years before harvesting tubers. If you live in a cold climate start them off in pots so tubers can be protected in winter.
