This wild, playful beauty is a breathtaking blend of salmon pink and peach with a slight bit of creamy yellow on each individual petal. Or you could just say she's watermelon-colour.
She flowers relentlessly and, with her plate-sized flowers, it's like she was made for romantic bouquets.
Wonderful with "Bacardi"!
Or in a four-way combo with "Penhill Dark Monarch", "Labyrinth" and "Jowey Winnie".
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.
