Description

Create a fruity summer cocktail of colour for your garden with this key ingredient, Dahlia 'Crème de Cassis'! No first-rate border should be without this berry-coloured beauty, packed with petals in a dreamy shade of twilight mauve on the upper side and a mouth-watering splash of blackcurrant red underneath to draw you in for a closer look. Flowering all summer long and right through to the first frosts, you’ll enjoy months of eye candy from this bountiful gem of a plant!

If you have a thing for pinks and mauves in the garden, Dahlia 'Crème de Cassis' is a must-have and will blend in beautifully. But it’s not just for the pastel lovers—for those who love contrast, this variety can be spiced up with a combination of red, burgundy and orange flowers or its partner in crime, Dahlia 'Crème de Cognac'.

Dahlias in 60 seconds

Dahlias like full sun and a free-draining soil, and should be lifted and stored in winter, or at least protected with peat or straw. Dahlia flowers can range from 5 to 25cm in diameter and those magnificent larger-flowering dahlias might appreciate a little extra support with canes!
