In the months of August to October Dahlia raise their cheerful heads flowering again and again, attracting bees and generally bringing a smile to all who see them.
Dahlia are a great late summer filler and fill almost every colour combination that is possible due to extensive breeding over the last few years. Many also have deep red – purple foliage that also complement the flower colours.
There are many differing flower forms in the world of Dahlia too – cactus form, double, pompom, anemone and saucer shaped. Rather than get too complicated in terms of flower form – let’s look at the generous range of colour available.
Cream / White – Bishop of Dover, Café au Lait, Twinings After Eight
Red - Chat Noir, Happy Days Red, Mystic Enchantment
Pink – Fascination, Gallery Rembrandt, Mystic Dreamer
Yellow- Happy Days Lemon, Bishop of York
Purple - Happy Days Purple, Lubega Power Lavender
Orange – Dahlia Mystic Haze, Power Yellow Orange
Whichever your choice you can guarantee that Dahlia bring sunshine to the garden and blend well with a wide range of flowering herbaceous plants and shrubs.
