Description

Do you remember those colourful windmill toys that amused us when we were children? Dahlia 'Windmill' will bring them to mind thanks to their twisted and folded petals and the cheerful combination of red and white. You’d almost expect them to start spinning when they catch the wind! Your summer garden is all about colour – lots of bright, happy, abundant colour, but Dahlia 'Windmill' adds an element of whimsy to the traditional flower border. Grab all the attention by showcasing this unusual dahlia variety in your flower garden. Those cheerful windmills are sure to make you smile!

Gracy's gardening tip:
"Remember – it’s easy to save your Dahlia tubers for replanting next year, and the year after, and the year after that."
