Explore Dahlia Tuber, Mike D'Antoni and more!

Dahlia 'Eveline' - Ideal for adding colour to the late summer border, this tall dahlia produces beautiful creamy white flowers, which have a hint of pink at their petal tips. This pink flush is quite noticeable when all the petals are still opening as it forms a distinctive 'eye' at the centre of each bloom. A wonderful addition to the mixed or herbaceous border, the flowers are also excellent for cut arrangements.

'Café au Lait': The flower colour of this gorgeous, decorative dahlia is hard to describe, but imagine rich cream with a big dollop of peachy-pink and you will get the idea. However the colour is described, the flowers are lush and lovely. They can grow up to 25cm across, so will make a pretty spectacular display in the border, or when cut and placed in a vase.

How to plant and grow dahlia tubers

Dahlias are one of the lowest maintenance, highest production cut flowers and garden plants you can grow. In a good year, they'll flower from late June to early December.
