Description

Fabulous peachy-orange blooms set against purple-black foliage ensure that your Dahlia 'Bishop of Oxford' will be a stand-out success. And you won’t lack for blooms, either. Dahlia 'Bishop of Oxford' flowers profusely, and though they aren’t the biggest-flowered of the Dahlias, they shouldn’t require staking because they don’t get as top-heavy as the larger flowered varieties. Besides, the mass of simple yet colourful blooms makes the bishop dahlia varieties perfect for the true-blue English country garden.

Cut blooms for flower arrangements to get even more flowers returning to replace them. Dahlia 'Bishop of Oxford' is all about abundance. Use it on its own in massed plantings or mixed borders or combine it with other bishop dahlia varieties.
