Ball & Pompom Dahlia Franz Kafka

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Pretty, perfectly formed, lavender-pink balls flower in profusion on dahlia ‘Franz Kafka’ over several months.

This pompon dahlia bears masses of honeycomb-textured blooms, enough for you to pick all summer and autumn for vibrant flower arrangements.

Grow in mixed herbaceous borders with tonal pinks and purples, or plant next to clashing orange or yellow for a daring look.  Suitable for container planting – choose a large, deep pot or trough, and fill with rich soil prior to planting.

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.
