Ball & Pompom Dahlia Jan van Schaffner

(inc. 20.0% VAT)


Out of stock


With flowers of delicious watermelon pink, dahlia ‘Jan Van Schaffelaar’ brings a ripe berry brightness to your late season display. The tightly packed petals of this pompon variety curve inwards to form intricate, rounded blooms. The spherical flower heads are held on long, straight stems, like giant strawberry lollipops. Ball dahlias are the perfect size for bouquets, and last better than most in a vase. Keep picking armfuls of blooms from July to October for a continual succession. Plant alongside perennials such as echinacea, salvia, and achillea for a floral fiesta all summer long.

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.
