Buy Dahlia Star Wars ('Vdtg14') (PBR) (Dark Angel Series) bronze leaved dahlia: Lots of colour from midsummer

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

    A compact dahlia with bronze-flushed foliage and dazzling, yellow-centred, pinkish-orange blooms, which not only look colourful, but are ideal for encouraging bees and other pollinating insects into the garden. They are particularly well-suited for pots and containers, where they will provide lashings of colour over a long period from midsummer. The flowers will also last well if cut and added to a vase.

    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.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
