Cactus dahlias make for an impressive display, bearing double flowerheads with spiky petals in a range of bright colours. Their star-shaped flower form means they stand up well to inclement weather, because they're less prone to being weighed down by heavy rain, or blown about by wind, than other dahlia types.
Dahlia 'Cactus Hybrids Mixed' is a mix of cactus dahlias, bearing curvaceous, spiky blooms in a range of colours. They are easy to grow from seed and make excellent cut flowers. For best results grow in full sun in moist but well-drained soil, and lift the tubers in November to overwinter for the following year.
