Preorder now  |  Delivery at planting time in March and April.

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.

Flowering period: July to the first frost

Flower size: 12cm – 15cm (4.5" – 6")

Flower type: Decorative

Colour: Salmon, ivory, pink

Height: 100cm – 110cm (39" – 43")

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.
