Waterily Type Flower
Pretty Rose-Pink Flowers
Full Sun, Well Drained, Fertile Soil
Dahlia 'Onesta' is a fabulous performer and a very popular Dahlia, lots of pretty, deep pink blooms with a tiny hint of blue. Onesta is wonderful for cutting. A good hot pink colour for mixing with blue, purple and white flowers of other herbaceous plants. We used this Dahlia in our 2019 Hampton Court Flower Show display. Flowers freely from mid-June to the first frosts of winter.
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.
