Ball Dahlia (Pre Orders)

Description

Dahlia Embassy is a stately ball dahlia that appears to have been made from silk. Its colour varies from a rich shade of burgundy to purple, sprinkled with a hint of silver, which seems to shine through the flower from behind. This gradually changes to a pink hue during flowering. Embassy is an eye-catcher even when in the bud. When in bloom, the flower is shaped like a decorative rosette. H90cm

Ball dahlias produce masses of colourful balls that unfold like Christmas decorations. They are larger than pompon dahlias and have a spiral arrangement of curved petals that form a ball or a slightly flattened sphere and are the longest lasting as a cut flower due to their high petal count and firm shape which is not easily damaged during transport.

Dahlias thrive in full sun to part shade and are ideal for pots and containers. They need around six hours of sun daily, with morning sun being ideal. They typically bloom 3-4 months after planting and can flower for months with regular deadheading. These plants are excellent for gardens, featuring long flowering periods, lush foliage, and a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes. Dahlia flowers are great for cutting and last well in vases. Cutting flowers in the morning and taking at least two leaves per stem encourages more blooms and bushy growth. Plant your dahlias in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil, and mix in well-rotted manure before planting. Plant tubers about 10 cm deep and stake tall varieties during planting to avoid root disturbance. Ensure good air circulation between plants. Dahlia tubers don't need to be lifted if the soil is well-drained and doesn't freeze. However, they should be dug up and divided every few years to maintain optimal flowering.
