This classic beauty has been blooming since 1942.

With her pale pink flowers, which get lighter and lighter towards the edges, and her somewhat flat shape, she reminds me of a water lily.

If you cut her regularly, she will reward you with a sea of flowers until well into late fall. Strong stems make her the perfect cut flower.

Combines wonderfully with "Hemisphere", "Shiloh Noelle" and "Café au Lait".


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: Water lily

Colour: Pale pink with soft yellow shimmer, outer petals are lighter

Height: 120cm (47")

Spacing: 50cm – 75cm (20" – 30")

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.
