Description

Flaunt a floral scene of café delights this summer with Dahlia collection 'Barista'. Comprising a mouth-watering mixture of Dahlia 'Cafe au Lait' sports, you can feast your eyes all summer long on a generous helping of gigantic blooms in delectable shades of cream, coffee-cream and pink. Plant this mix and create an effortlessly impressive panoply of perfectly petal-packed dahlia blooms which burst from bud after bud during summer and well into autumn!

Whether you grow dahlias purely to enjoy in the garden and snip a few for indoors, or have a dedicated cut flower patch, Dahlia collection 'Barista' would love to be a part of it. These mixed 'Cafe au Lait' sports provide such a profuse offering which, without much fuss at all, will fill a space in the garden with unbelievable beauty for months. One of the best things about dinnerplate dahlias like these is that you don’t have to cut many to make a big impact in an indoor arrangement—they’re so big that usually just one or two is enough to make an arrangement look extra special.

Gracy's gardening tip:
"Chances are, your decorative dahlias will need stakes to support those gigantic blooms. You don’t want to damage your precious dahlia tubers, so plant the stakes at the same time as the bulbs."

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!
