Dahlias are great plants for dry and sunny spots in your garden - as drought-tolerant plants they'll cope with hot, dry weather, blooming throughout the summer. Deadheading them will help to prolong the flowering period. Lift and store your dahlia tubers in the autumn, ready to be planted out the following spring. Read our how to grow bulbs guide for more information.
Dahlia 'Blue Wish'
New breeding enhances the blue pigment in dahlias a little more each year, and Dahlia 'Blue Wish' shows the latest colour improvements. The white petals have delicate purple tips as they open but quickly mature to a solid shade of lilac, creating a pretty two-tone effect. The large blooms of this eye-catching dahlia are carried on tall stems which make a lovely feature toward the back of borders, or in a summery bouquet of freshly cut flowers. Height: 120cm (47"). Spread: 60cm (24").
