"Bacardi" looks so much more beautiful in real life, she's guaranteed to be the envy of your neighbours.

Her large, pink flowers with berry-coloured centres are just gorgeous. And, like all dahlias, she's just as much of a dream as a cut flower.

Speaking of which: it's best to cut them when the flowers are about a third open.

"Bacardi" is one of those that are also happy in a pot.

You'll get the most beautiful autumn colours when you combine her with "Penhill Dark Monarch", "Café au Lait" and "Mango Madness".


Tip: 
Pinch dahlias as soon as they are 20cm to 30cm (8" to 12") tall: simply shorten the shoot tip by a third. This way, they'll form more shoots, flower more and look bushier.

And, if you're hungry for more dahlia details, have a look at my "DAHLIA DELIGHT" eBook. Everything you ever wanted to know about caring for your dahlias and, of course, full to the brim with beautiful photos and inspiration.


Planting:
May, after the last frost — dahlias are sensitive to frost! Or pre-grow them in a frost-free environment.

Location: Preferably in full sun. Dahlias also tolerate partial shade, but they won't flower as lavishly.

Flowering period: July to the first frost

Flower size: 15cm (6")

Flower type: Decorative

Colour: Pink and blush with a raspberry-coloured centre

Height: 90cm (35")

Spacing: 40cm (16")

Quantity: 1 tuber


🐝 Dahlias are often wrongly described as not insect-friendly. But for most of them, as soon as the flowers open up (even the fully double ones), Bees & Co can access stamen and pollen.
