Dahlia 'Gallery Matisse'
Compact Decorative Dahlia
Ultimate Height 45cm
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia 'Gallery Matisse' is another beautiful dahlia in the 'Gallery Series', which means it has a compact growth and plenty of gorgeous, peachy-orange blooms that go on flowering right up to the first frosts. This dahlia also has lovely deep green foliage and its compact size means its perfect for the front of the border or for planting in pots and containers.
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.
