Description

A lovely new variety with soft blush pink flowers having a white base to the petals. This is a good strong growing variety with good stems easily growing to 1.2m. Shown at the National Dahlia Society show at Wisley in 2016 it was awarded both the Ernest Luckhurst Memorial Cup and the prestigious Jescot Perpetual Challenge Cup amongst stiff competition. Plants should idelly be stopped at about 5-6 pairs of leaves and up to 12 breaks, or laterals allowed to develop on each plant. These in turn should be lightly disbudded removing up to 2 pairs of buds below the main terminal flower bud, especially when used for showing. For general garden and cut flower use then only the first pair of buds need be removed. Regular deadheading will ensure a continuous production of blooms throughout the flowering season. The raiser, Gordon Hodgson, has requested that all royalties that he would be entitled to for the first year sales be donated to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
