Buy Dahlia 'Thomas A. Edison' decorative dahlia tuber: Use it as a colour accent - or for cutting

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    We wanted this decorative dahlia as its flower colour is so easy to mix with a wide range of other shades. The medium-sized blooms are crammed with magenta pink petals, which tend to be a touch paler towards their outer edges. They are also excellent for cutting, which will encourage more to form.

  • Garden care: Provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Once the first frosts of autumn have blackened the foliage, carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.
