    A compact dahlia with bronze-flushed foliage and dazzling, yellow-centred, pinkish-orange blooms, which not only look colourful, but are ideal for encouraging bees and other pollinating insects into the garden. They are particularly well-suited for pots and containers, where they will provide lashings of colour over a long period from midsummer. The flowers will also last well if cut and added to a vase.

  • Garden care: Provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.
