Description

This Santa Claus doesn’t make his entrance down your chimney on a cold December night to deliver presents to all good little boys and girls. Instead the Dahlia 'Santa Claus' brings you the gift of bright and colourful flowers in your summer garden - and he is not given to be checking up on your behaviour during the year! Just be sure to prepare the soil well, wait till there is no danger of spring frost, and plant him in the sun. Dahlia 'Santa Claus' will be sure to shower you with his bright and showy white blooms with streaks of red which make the long white petals look almost wispy like Father Christmas' beard.
