Dahlia ‘Roxy’

Dahlia ‘Roxy’ is a compact dahlia, bearing incredible deep magenta-pink flowers over red-green foliage, from late-spring to early autumn. Its size and length of flowering make it the perfect choice for smaller gardens, where it’s well suited to growing towards the front of the herbaceous border, or in pots.
