Dahlia 'Nuit d'Ete'
Maroon-Red Double Cactus Flowers
Ultimate Height 1M+
Full Sun , Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia 'Nuit d'Ete' is a gorgeous dahlia with spiky, deep red blooms. This dahlia makes a great cut flower and adds a beautiful contrast to other brightly coloured flowers in the summer border, especially orange flowered plants.
When growth reaches 20-30cm, pinch or snip out the growing tips to promote bushy, strong growth.
Once the frosts are over, plant into a pot or ground in fertile soil in full sun and water well.
TIP! When planting your Dahlia insert 3-4 sturdy canes or stakes around the plant, tie twine or string around the supports and let the dahlia grow up between them, this will support them when they are flowering. This is a much more natural and easier way of growing dahlia rather than trying to do it once the plant has grown tall and also the roots are less likely to be disturbed.
