Description

Arguably the best red dahlia available, ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ produces rich-vermillion velvet blooms for months on end -  perfect for adding a splash of long-lasting vibrancy to beds, borders and containers.

Bronze-black, deeply divided foliage provides wonderful contrast to the paeony-flowered scarlet blooms which are adored by pollinators.

Awarded a prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the RHS for exceptional performance and show-stopping looks, this sensational dahlia is unmissable in the garden all summer and autumn, thriving in sunny borders and large feature containers.

Care Guide

To grow Dahlias, select a sunny spot with well-drained soil, and dig a 30cm deep hole. Plant the tuber 10cm below the soil surface, spacing multiple tubers 45cm apart, or 90cm for taller varieties. Water consistently, maintaining moist but not saturated soil and protect new shoots from slug damage with eco-friendly methods. Feed plants during the blooming period with liquid plant food. Provide support for stems which will reach 60-90cm tall depending on variety. Enjoy spectacular blooms from late summer until first frosts. Cut or deadhead the flowers regularly for a continually flourishing display. Once blooming has finished, cut back foliage before lifting, drying and storing the tubers in peat-free substitute, in a frost-free place until the following spring.
