Plant details

This dahlia mix has curvaceous, spiky blooms, with many that are fully double. There are loads of flowers for cutting and it's also superb in the flower border for late summer to autumn blooms. Although dahlias are tender perennials, this one grows from seed as a half-hardy annual. But it's worth trying to overwinter the tubers in a frost-free shed to plant in spring the next year.
