With her quizzical name, she brings a little magic to your garden. Wonderfully fresh, the most delicate lilac and white tones with just a hint of green.
She always reminds me a little of porcelain.
"Who me?" grows over a metre tall with large, lush flowers. She'll stand out perfectly, even at the back of your flower bed.
She's also an excellent cut flower.
A pretty-in-pink dream with "Labyrinth Twotone", "Shiloh Noelle" and "Bishop of Leicester".
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.
