Abundant, watermelon pink flowers with a white blush. Definitely one to cherish. The blooms change as they mature, this image is an early bloom the pink bleeds more heavily into the petals as they mature.
These early flowering, dwarf Hypnotica Dahlias are terrific fillers as they make bold, late season pops of colour. They are also a great choice for containers. Though the plant is petite, the flowers are a good size. The compact growth has superior branching and the blooms abundant. They all flower at the same time which enables you to mix and match colours to your specifications.
Hypnotica Dahlias are rain and mildew tolerant.
Plant Dahlias into moist, humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot, they need at least six hours to flower well.
As these are dwarf Dahlias they are a good choice in pots, choose a decent size pot with drainage holes and add a good quality potting mix. In pots you will need to ensure you water well once they are up and growing, if they dry out they will sulk and you won’t get a good display. You will also need to add fertiliser regularly as per the directions on the pack.
Dahlias have big blooms for a long period so fertiliser is important, a tomato fertiliser is a good choice. The addition of Sulphate of Potash, will encourage strong blooms and general plant health. They have been grown from cuttings.
Remove spent flowers to keep the plants looking good and encourage more blooms. Dahlinova Hypnotica Dahlias will last well in a vase, but the stems are shorter than standard Dahlias, as they sit just to the edge of the foliage.
