Featuring a mix Waterlily-type dahlias, this fun collection offers cherry-red and apricot coloured blooms.
The Dahlias in our Tutti Frutti Mix are Waterlily Dahlias. These types of Dahlias actually look like waterlilies and are characterized by fully double blooms of somewhat broad petals giving it a shallow appearance. They grow on very sturdy stems making them excellent for cut flowers. 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!
