Dahlia Bishop of York

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Dahlia ‘Bishop of York’ produces a healthy bed of lush, deep-purple foliage, studded with sunny yellow blooms for numerous months from July. 

The tasteful colour and texture combination looks stunning in large vintage metal containers with feathery grasses, tall Rudbeckia and dark trailing foliage plants, fitting well into both modern and traditional garden designs.

Anemone-flowering ‘Bishop of York’ blooms profusely from mid-summer until frost signals dormancy for the plants.  Keep deadheading spent flowerheads, or better still, cut the ochre flowers for uplifting seasonal floral arrangements and bouquets.

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.
