These Dahlias have single flowers with flat outer petals and the pincushion centre surrounded by a ring of shorter florets.
Vibrant plum petals with faded edges, a circlet of tiny white petals and a rich golden heart create the perfectly formed, elegant blooms of collarette dahlia ‘Fabula’.
The classic beauty of this compact dahlia may be enjoyed up close, as they make brilliant container plants, blooming over a lengthy period from July until at least October.
Brilliant in pots and planted near the front of a garden border next to other purple or orange-toned dahlias, ornamental grasses and colourful bedding plants.
The subtle colouring of cheerful collarette dahlia ‘Famosa’ makes this plant a chic choice for beautiful summer containers and bountiful borders.
Two sets of petals form the exquisite blooms - an outer larger set in a romantic shade of soft lilac-pink and a smaller, inner ruffle of pure white petals surrounding the ochre centre.
The flowers are adored by bees, butterflies, and other garden pollinators as they are a rich source of nectar.
This gorgeous dahlia harmonises well in the border with white and cream shades as well as rich burgundy hues and dark foliage.
The cranberry-red blooms of collarette dahlia ‘Fantastico’ shine like rubies in the summer border, flowering through until the end of autumn.
This luxurious antique red dahlia features a smaller ring of white-tipped petals circling the nectar-rich heart. Pollinator-friendly collarette and single-flowered dahlias are a wonderful addition to any garden and will reward you with a long season of blooms. Perfect for containers thanks to their compact habit.
Balances well with vibrant, saturated colours - we think it looks sublime with orange dahlia ‘Bishop of Oxford’ and blood-red ‘Viking’.
