Pale purple or pink, depending on the light and time of day, with dark markings and a fresh greeny yellow shimmer in the centre and double blooms – "Karma Prospero" really stands out in your flower bed.
Karma dahlias were originally cultivated as cut flowers, which means they have particularly strong stems and stay fresh in a vase for up to 12 days.
And don't worry – the Karma dahlia tubers are smaller, but that doesn't say anything about the size of the flower.
You can combine "Karma Prospero" with "Lavender Perfection" and "Who me?" .
Or with "Hemisphere", "Labyrinth Twotone" and "Creme de Cassis".
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.

🐝 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.
