Plant details

Bred by amateur breeder Dave Bates, 'Amgard Rosie' is named after his daughter. A small decorative type, it is a lovely shade of rosy-pink. It was released in the early 1990s and makes a good cut flower. Like most dahlias, it is tender when grown in the UK. Plant after the danger of frost has passed in late spring and then lift the tubers after the foliage is blackened by the first frosts of autumn. The tubers can then be stored indoors over winter.
