Petra's Wedding petals of pure white are simply delightful. This is the perfect Ball Dahlia to pair with others such as Marble Ball and Wizard of Oz.
Resembling those knitted balls on Grandma’s slippers, Ball & Pompon Dahlias are fully double flowers that are perfectly globe shaped. Expect an abundance of blooms approximately 6” – 14 cm in size. Originating from Mexico and Guatemala, these were the flowers of Inca kings and despite their royal origins Dahlias are amongst the easiest plants to grow in the garden.
They are a wonderful source of cut flowers and will provide a veritable cornucopia of colourful blooms for your bouquets from mid summer until the first frost. Hardy as they are, Dahlias are susceptible to cold so be careful not to plant them too early and be sure to dig them up after the first frost and store them in a frost-free place.
