New Small Decorative Dahlia from Les Jackson and named in memory of the first woman soldier fatality in Afghanistan. This soft creamy white old fashioned looking small decorative with a lovely overlay of blush pink has a quintessentially classical look. It makes a superb dahlia for both the garden and for cutting with the superb flowers, held on strong stems, lasting well in water. Height wise this will grow to about 1-1.2m and will produce flowers from 10-15cm when stopped 5 pairs of leaves and the resultant shoots trimmed out to leave 6-10 flowering stems. For better cut flowers the first 2-3 pairs of buds below the main flowering bud should be removed. A donation will be made to Help for Heroes for each plant sold.
