Buy Dahlia 'Totally Tangerine' anemone-flowered dahlia tuber: A free-flowering 'anemone' form dahlia

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

    Keep on cutting the blooms for the vase, and for several months from midsummer, this dahlia will continuously send up flower after flower. The colouring is a subtle blend of orange and pink, so it mixes easily with both these shades, and it also looks great with deep reds and plum tones.

  • 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 over-crowded. 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.

Totally Tangerine is a perfect contrast to my salvia 'Amistad'.

I bought this to cut for the house, but the stems were a bit weak and short compared to others that I grow. However it is a lovely dahlia and flowered continuously, so ideal for a garden. The flowers are not especially long lived, but they keep coming if you deadhead, and the bees loved them.
