Dahlia 'Honka Fragile'
Orchid Type Dahlia
White Delicate Flowers On Long Stems
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
We love this beautiful, delicate looking Dahlia! 'Honka Fragile' is an offspring from the well known Dahlia 'Honka', those neat, star shaped petals with bright yolk and yellow centres really look spectacular dancing on long slender stems, they create a more airy, romantic display and especially with the bees buzzing from one flower to another. Close up, each petal is slightly rolled inwards and edged in pink. A little beauty!
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.
