Dahlia Collarette Kelsey Sunshine

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



No matter what the British weather holds in store, dahlia ‘Kelsey Sunshine’ will bring warmth and light to your garden. This collarette-type dahlia features petite, pale-yellow florets, encircled by an outer layer of ‘ray’ petals, mirroring the rays of the sun. The delicate, translucent petals allow light to shine through, capturing every luminescent beam. These open-centred flowers are a magnet for pollinating insects, ushering bees and butterflies to sample the plentiful pollen. The perpetually radiant blooms are produced in abundance, continuing from July until the first frosts. Brighten your borders with ‘Kelsey Sunshine’ and chase away the grey!

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.
