Dahlia Dalina® Grande Merida
Called 'Grande' for a reason, the large red and white flecked flowers that cover this plant in summer are a striking sight! Great for borders or patio pots and superb if used as cut flowers. Drought tolerant.
Grow in patio containers, or plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Cut out any dead flowers as they fade. May need some winter protection.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
