This lovely low-growing dahlia looks great planted in bold groups at the front of a sheltered sunny border with fertile humus-rich soil. It produces masses of single vermilion flowers against dark almost black foliage from June until the first frosts when the tubers should be lifted for over-wintering in a frost-free place.

  • Garden care: Provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place checking frequently over the winter months.
