Description

Sunset shades of orange, pink and gold that whisk you to your favourite holiday spot, bringing back treasured memories of balmy evenings, cool cocktails and chance encounters. Boasting soft tones and curving petals, the decorative Dahlia 'Lake Tahoe' creates perfectly formed rosettes of colour that gently bathe the garden with a warming glow. As each bloom unfolds, the colours intensify from bright yellow to a rosy-pink tint at the outer edges of every petal. It's not all about looks though!

Dahlia 'Lake Tahoe' has a neat and bushy habit, growing to around just 90cm with a cloak of lush, green foliage to complement its lustrous flowers. Its compact stems make this beauty particularly useful for bringing a late-summer glow to patio containers where it can really bask in the limelight.  Alternatively grow this tuberous perennial towards the front of a sunny border to provide an extra layer of colour in front of taller varieties.

Like all dahlias, 'Lake Tahoe' produces plenty of flowers, so you can always afford to spare few for a vase indoors. In fact, the more you snip, the more blooms will appear, flowering from summer right through to the first frosts of autumn. A sunny spot and fertile, but well-drained soil are all that this decorative dahlia asks for in return for such a vibrant and long lasting display.
