Luscious pastel pink and cream tones. Grandalia Dahlias are generous, compact plants that boast an exceptionally long flowering time with big colourful blooms. They are uniform with serried, short, strong stems that proudly
hold the blooms aloft from around November to May. Good garden performers or useful as portable colour in 20cm containers.
Perfect in pots or gardens, the strong stems do not require staking and the plants have impressively strong mildew resistance. Grandalia Dahlia flowers open early and bloom consistently throughout the season, offering tremendous value.
Like all Dahlias, they are great for picking, with the added benefit that when you do, they will then produce even more blooms.
Plant in a sunny spot, they need around six hours of sun a day to flower well and morning sun is best. Humus rich, moist, well drained soil is ideal. Keep the soil moist during active growth. Adding a slow release Tomato fertiliser and some Sulphate of Potash, in late spring/early summer will help keep them blooming at their best.
The tubers don’t really need to be lifted if the soil is well drained and you don’t live in an area where the soil will freeze. But they should be dug and divided every so often to maintain their vigour.
