Dahlia 'Taratahi Ruby'

Plant details

Waterlily dahlias bear double, almost flat flowers shaped like a saucer.

Dahlia 'Taratahi Ruby' bears scarlet flowers over a long period. It's ideal for growing in a sunny border and makes an excellent cut flower.

For best results, grow Dahlia 'Taratahi Ruby' in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Deadhead regularly and feed with a potash-rich fertiliser to prolong flowering. Lift tubers after the first frosts and store them in a cool, dry situation until March. Then pot them up and keep them in a temperate greenhouse before planting out in late May.
