Reinvigorate tired patio displays and remain surrounded by colour late into the season with these gorgeous dahlias. From late summer onwards, many container displays start to run out of steam, especially in a hot, dry summer. But these top performing dahlias are guaranteed to put life back into the garden. Selected for their flowering and growth, Dreamy™ dahlias bloom profusely from midsummer until the first frosts. They have been carefully bred to have excellent pot performance, remaining nicely compact and firm but not too firm, so the flowers sway in the breeze and retain a natural appearance. Their large, self-cleaning flowers come in punchy colours which stand out dramatically against shiny, dark green, almost bronze leaves. Height 45cm (18in). Spread: 40cm (16in).

Dahlia Double Dreamy™ Collection includes the following four varieties:

  • Double Dreamy™ Red
  • Double Dreamy™ Gold
  • Double Dreamy™ Rose
  • Double Dreamy™ Lilac

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 45cm (18in)
Spread Up to 40cm (16in)

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.
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.
