Dahlias for Pots & Containers
Dahlia ‘Alstergruss’ is a dwarf collarette dahlia, bearing masses of pretty citrus-orange cartwheels.
The vibrant, open-faced blooms smother neat foliage from July to October, shining out against a dark-green backdrop. Delightful in a tropical colour scheme with coral-reds and rich yellow tones.
This productive and petite dahlia is also perfect for patio pots and colourful summer containers.
Grown with taller varieties such as ‘Jive’ and ‘Honka Yellow’, ‘Alstergruss’ will beam at the forefront of the border.
Full of captivating charm, dahlia ‘Hartenaas’ is a delightful dahlia, perfect for patio pots and containers.
This whimsical beauty bears an abundance of sweet pink flowers over a lengthy period. Blooms from July, until first frosts in autumn when you can bring your containers undercover for protection from the harshest of winter weather.
The single flowers appear in rosy-pink shades and feature a delicate ruffled collar of small, lighter petals around a golden centre. Packed with pollen and nectar, the flowers are a magnet to bees, butterflies and garden pollinators, meaning they are a wonderful addition to wildlife gardens.
Dahlia ‘Melody Bolero’ proves the old adage that sometimes the best things come in small packages. Like a petite opera singer who fills the theatre with her powerful voice, this compact yet charismatic variety provides remarkable impact. The bantam-sized plant is smothered in masses of ravishing, rounded, scarlet red blooms, capturing the attention of all who pass by. Reaching a height of 40cm, ‘Melody Bolero’ is a perfect choice for filling containers, enlivening patio displays, and planting at the front of borders. You will be rewarded by a lyrical performance for months on end, from July to October. Encore!
Dahlia ‘Sneezy’ is a petite, pure-white dahlia. The simple flowers bloom in abundance from July until late autumn, covering a compact mound of bright green foliage. Pick stems, or deadhead spent blooms regularly for a stream of fresh, snowy blooms.
The single, daisy-like flowers are a haven for pollinators who congregate to feast on their nectar-dense centres.
An ideal choice for pots and containers, thanks to a tidy growth habit and long season of interest. We think it looks wonderful with airy grasses peeping through and trailing foliage tumbling over pot edges.
