Indulge in a delightful mix of peachy-apricot and pink toned dahlias, infusing your summer with sumptuous colour in borders, pots, and cut flower arrangements. A refreshing combination of two-tone orange and tangerine flowers, some with a deeper blood-red orange underside, combined with ball-shaped heads transitioning from apricot-pink to warm golden peach, creating a head-turning display against lush green foliage.

In each collection you will receive one tuber of each of the following cultivars:

  • Dahlia 'French Cancan': A loose and flouncy dahlia with two-tone orange flowers, 'French Cancan' is a gorgeous bloomer with light tangerine, slightly twisted petals and a deeper, warmer underside of blood-red orange. Fabulous for cutting, this fanciful and playful tuberous perennial is sure to bring a smile to your face, whether in bloom in the garden or in a vase. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Dahlia 'Wine Eyed Jill': This dahlia freely produces its gorgeous flowerheads over an extended period from midsummer. Each one tops a tall purple-flushed stem, and as they mature, their colour changes from a sumptuous apricot-pink to a warm golden peach. Grows to 1m.

  • Dahlia 'Totally Tangerine': Keep on cutting the blooms for the vase, and for several months from midsummer, this dahlia will continuously send up flower after flower. The colouring is a subtle blend of orange and pink, so it mixes easily with both these shades, and it also looks great with deep reds and plum tones. Grows to 80cm.

  • Garden care:
    Dahlia tubers can be planted outside after frost, or started off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the ‘eyes’ are uppermost. Allow enough room between each tuber so the plants can grow and spread to their full size without being overcrowded. While in growth, provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Stake with canes or brushwood if it becomes necessary. In mild areas, leave them in situ over winter, but protect the crown with a generous layer of dry mulch. In colder areas, carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first frosts have blackened the foliage and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until planting out again.
