Dahlia 'Little Robert'
Deep Pink-Purple-Mageta Flowers
Small Pompom Type Dahlia
Ultimate Height 1M
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia Little Robert has a striking pompom flower of varying arty colours of magenta, pink and purple, looking as if its been applied by a paintbrush. A great dahlia for mixing and contrasting with other sumptuous dahlia varieties. Little Robert produces lots of flowers on strong stems so you could be cutting flowers right up to the first frosts.
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.
