Summer/autumn blooming bulb
Flowers, Dramatic foliage
An unusual mix of dahlias in a range of striking colours, which are complemented by rich, dark purple foliage. They are easy to grow from seed and will put on a good show throughout the summer months if planted in a sunny spot with rich soil. They are particularly good for filling gaps in the herbaceous border and also last well as cut flowers. The plants are quite tall growing to around 60-75cm (24-30in) high.
