Jowey is just the sweetest.
Keep lovingly deadheading her and "Jowey Winnie" will shower you with gorgeous apricot-coloured balls from July right through to November.
Her apricot shimmer has made her a favourite for wedding decorations.
Perfect as a cut flower. And in pots too!
Buy d'you know, "Jowey Winnie" somehow looks good anywhere. Have a look at the photos for possible combinations... Not easy to pick one, right?
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.

Flower type: Ball

🐝 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.
