Description

Spectacularly huge blooms formed of magnificent bursts of curvy, fresh watermelon-toned petals, this unbelievably beautiful Dahlia 'Penhill Watermelon' is drenched with style and absolutely astounding in every way! When it comes to flower fashion, the combination of colour, shape and flower size of this swanky variety is right on trend, not only for its garden appeal but also for its startling impact in cut-flower bouquets. Just one of these big blooms is enough to make an amazing arrangement!

Growing from large, bushy plants, Dahlia 'Penhill Watermelon' produces continuous blooms throughout summer and right up until the first frosts of autumn. You’ll get so much of a reward from just a single tuber, and if you plant a group of them you’ll be in for a real treat. If you’re looking for something grand to take centre stage in the garden, these are the ones!
