Dahlia Collarette Famosa

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



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.

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.
