Semi-Cactus Frimbiata Dahlia
Coral-Pink and Yellow Flowers
Ultimate Height 1M+
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia 'Karen' is a gorgeous fully spiky dahlia with deep coral flowers flushed with yellow in the centre. This dahlia will add some drama and texture, especially when planted with other darker dahlia varieties.
Pot your tubers up in Spring and keep frost free.
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.
