  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy (may need winter protection)

    Iridescent lilac-pink petals, each with a rich plum base, surround the central disc, forming charming flowerheads that are highlighted against the backdrop of the deep purple-bronze foliage. Excellent in a patio pot.

  • Garden care: Dahlia tubers can be planted outside after frost, or started off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the ‘eyes’ are uppermost. Allow enough room between each tuber so the plants can grow and spread to their full size without being overcrowded. While in growth, provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Stake with canes or brushwood if it becomes necessary. In mild areas, leave them in situ over winter, but protect the crown with a generous layer of dry mulch. In colder areas, carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first frosts have blackened the foliage and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until planting out again.

Notes on Dahlia Happy Single Wink ('HS Wink') (PBR) (Happy Single Series)

"Start Dahlia tubers in pots and keep them in a light frost-free place until planting out time in early June. Try to get them up to a foot in height, because then they will be less attractive to the slugs."

Great colour for the Autumn very pleased


Arrived in good time, plant was healthy. Good buy!




Sturdy bulbs produce beautiful flowers.


Well packed and arrived in good condition. I have always found products bought from Crocus to be of a high quality, a reflection of their care for plants. I shall definitely buy from this company again.




Very happy,as advertised


Just as I wanted dark foliage and lovely simple flowers

Gorgeous Dahlia. Bought 2!!


I lost my "Single Wink" Dahlia last winter despite lifting and storing so got 2 new ones from Crocus. They were small but grew rapidly and I did have some flowers. A beautiful open Dahlia that our bees also enjoy!




Not up to scratch


Struggled with more stronger types in the dahlia bed . Worth the wait when it did appear .Flowering rather poor




I would buy this product. Perfect.


Brilliant flowers. Beautiful foliage. Just like the photos. Perfect plants. Storing them again this winter. Would certainly shop with you again.

A dahlia to make you happy


First saw this dahlia at RHS Harlow Carr and my wife loved it. Only a single and not as showy as the large doubles but flowers on and on from early Summer till the frosts We have paired it with Bishop of Devon (white) and they look great together If you want a dahlia to fill your borders this will make you happy
