Description
Flowering from June to the first frosts, this addition to our range of dahlias is a real stand-out specimen which will create a truly unusual splash of colour in borders and containers. The densely packed petals are a very pale pink when viewed from above, but their undersides are a rich ‘crème de cassis’ colour - hence the name. The smaller petals at the centre of the flower which have yet to unfurl, give the appearance of a darker-coloured centre, although it’s simply the colour of the undersides of the petals that gives this impression. Looking almost like a water lily, Dahlia ‘Crème de Cassis’ makes a fabulous cut flower, so try putting some in a vase or giving a bunch to a friend? Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 45cm (18").


6 dahlia tubers (KA0121)
3 dahlia tubers (KA0120)

How to Grow
Pot up Dahlia plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise dahlia plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out in beds, borders and containers. Choose a position in full sun on any rich fertile, moist, well drained soil.
More Info
Feed and water dahlias regularly throughout the growing season. While dahlia plants are still young, pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage bushier growth and masses of flowers. Deadhead faded dahlia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Bedding dahlia are generally grown as annuals, however dahlia tubers may be lifted in autumn and stored over winter in trays of peat or sand, in a cool but frost free position if required. They can be potted up the following spring.
