Dahlia 'Dark Butterfly'
Semi-Double Vintage Pink Brushed Flowers
Ultimate Height 1M
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia 'Dark Butterfly' has beautiful semi-double flowers with lovely painted dark pink and creamy yellow petals. A real vintage looking Dahlia. The flowers are wonderful for cutting, they have a great vase life and the pink-yellow flowers look great with other dark flowered dahlia and herbaceous flowers.
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.
Dahlia love lots of food and water during the growing season. They will continue to flower from mid-June until the first frosts. Lift the tubers after the first frosts and over-winter frost free OR leave in situ and mulch well. (mark where you have planted them!).
Dark Butterfly reaches 1M in height.
