Dinner Plate Dahlia Avignon

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The huge, blowsy flowerheads of dahlia ‘Avignon’, add architectural magnificence to the garden when in bloom from July, until the first frosts.

The sheer size of these breath-taking blooms is enough to make you stop in your tracks.  Take a peek up-close to marvel at the unique, marbled markings of the mulberry-splashed, white petals.

This distinct dahlia is impressive as a focal plant in the garden and makes for an interesting cut flower.  Just one or two of these speckled blooms will add a touch of elegant flamboyance to a seasonal floral display.

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.
