Description

This stunning variety from Phil Godsmark has been much talked about, especially since seen at Wisely in 2016. A profusion of dark red flowers are borne from August through to the frosts. Flowers are well formed having a very neat pom formation. As the season progresses the colour changes to a rich burnt orange. Occasional white petals may appear, particularly on later blooms, but these can be easily pulled out at an early stage as the flowers develop, particularly if using for showing. IIf growing for showing then a double stop is advisable to get as many breaks on the plant as possible to keep the size of the flowers down. Grow as many blooms up as the plant will support only disbudding at a late stage and for getting stem length for cutting. The rich colour of this variety also makes it ideal as a cut flower. Strong plants grow to 1.2-1.5m. Suitable for Exhibition, garden show and for cutting.

Dahlia Pot Tubers  TUBERS ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL NOT BE DELIVERED UNTIL MID-END JANUARY AT THE EARLIEST

The tubers we offer are dahlias which have been grown for a full season in the confines of a 4” or 5” pot, so that a small compact tuber is produced. They are ideal material for the exhibitor with a heated greenhouse or propagator to enable their own propagation. Tubers are available from DECEMBER to FEBRUARY and are packed in polythene sleeves with vermiculite. We strongly advise unpacking on arrival and if necessary store tubers in a cool frost free environment until required for setting away. A minimum of 50F (10oC) is required for propagation, water sparingly until growth is evident. Should any tuber fail to have shown any signs of growth by the end of March then please contact us so we can aim to organise replacements as rooted cuttings. Please note Pot Tuber numbers are limited so order early to avoid disappointment.
