The name pretty much sums her up.
With a combination of colours – shifting from salmon to pink to apricot – she definitely reminds me of a mango. And with her slightly ruffled, tousled flowers, she has all the qualities of a (garden show) beauty queen. So, give it up for Mango Madness!
Looks wonderful as a cut flower.
She looks beautiful planted alongside "Café au Lait", "Bacardi" and "Penhill Dark Monarch".
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.
