Dark Monarch is also known as the pink sister of "Café au Lait". Although there is now also the "Café au Lait Rosé"...

Slightly ruffled petals that shimmer white on the inside give her a particularly bold and beautiful look.

Huge flowers in intense shades from dark pink to violet purple look almost like they've been painted.

She's especially lovely with "Café au Lait".

Or combined with "Labyrinth", "Jowey Winnie" and "Penhill Watermelon".


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: 20cm – 24cm (8" – 9.5")

Flower type: Decorative

Colour: Pink, lilac pink and dusky pink

Height: 110cm (43")

Spacing: 50cm (20")

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.
