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

Quite possibly the most romantic dahlia.

She looks like a bouquet of pale-pink cotton wool balls, almost a creamy blush colour. This sorceress of the dahlia world has been blessed with an extra dose of charm.

She doesn't grow quite as tall as the others.

If you want them in a vase, it's best to cut them before the pompoms fully open. Waiting until they're in bloom means they'll drop their leaves quicker.

She's absolutely beautiful planted together with other delicate shades, such as "Shiloh Noelle" or "Café au Lait".


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: 5cm – 9cm (2" – 3.5")

Flower type: Ball

Colour: Pale pink

Height: 80cm (31.5")

Spacing: 40cm (16")

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.
