Dahlia Collarette Fantastico

Description

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’.

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.
