Boy oh boy 'Sunny Boy' is sure a cheerful delight! Nice big, rounded blooms of sunny yellow tipped with orangey-red he promises to light up the garden from late summer into the fall.
Resembling those knitted balls on Grandma’s slippers, Pompon Dahlias are fully double flowers that are perfectly globe shaped. Expect an abundance of blooms approximately 2” –5 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 and store them in a frost-free place before old Jack Frost comes calling!
