Plant details

Arabian Night' is a beautiful dahlia with large, fully-double flowerheads of dark burgundy-red, from June until the first frosts. It needs full sun in a sheltered site. Feed and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Lift the tubers after the first frost and overwinter indoors in a frost-free place. Susceptible to earwigs, aphids and slug damage, so appropriate controls should be used to help prevent these problems.
