Viking produces ball-like blooms of the most sumptuous, velvety red colour.
Resembling those knitted balls on Grandma’s slippers, Ball & Pompon Dahlias are fully double flowers that are perfectly globe shaped. 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.
