As delicate as a summer meadow flower.
Her pale pink flowers with ultra-delicate stripes and dark leaves look enchanting in flower beds and lavish bouquets.
And the golden orange pistils make her very popular with insects.
Great as cut flowers and suitable for pots.
Want to create a bee paradise and colour extravaganza? Then combine her with "Skyfall, "Blue Bayou" and "Totally Tangerine".
Or you could always go soft and sensuous with "Jowey Winnie" and"Shiloh Noelle".
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.

🐝 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.
