What's in the (beautiful) box (1 of each variety):
"Café au Lait", "Café au Lait Suprème", "Café au Lait Royal", "Café au Lait Rosé", "Café au Lait Twist"
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
Colour: White, cream, blush, pink
Height: 80cm – 100cm (32" – 40")
Spacing: 50cm – 75cm (20" – 30")
Quantity: 5 tubers
🐝 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.
