Cactus Dinner Plate Dahlias
These Dahlias produce giant flower heads up to 8 - 10" across.
Nothing lifts the garden and the spirits quite like an enormous, bright yellow dahlia – as ‘Gelber Vulcan’ demonstrates with panache. Joyous and exuberant, this stunning variety will bring a sense of elation to your garden. Named ‘Vulcan’ after the Roman god of fire, the vivid golden blooms blaze like sunshine on a scorching summer’s day. With dinner-plate sized heads and towering stems, this flamboyant plant is an extrovert amongst beds and borders. The flowers burn bright from summer well into autumn, revivifying your display towards the end of the season and bringing brightness to the greyest of days.
The explosive blooms of dahlia ‘Hollyhill Spiderwoman’ are breath-taking. A textural, spidery mass of carmine, purple and ivory winding petals make up each magnificent flowerhead.
Flowering from July onwards, this dahlia will bloom in abundance. Pick the plentiful stems to enjoy indoors, adding the flowers to bouquets and arrangements, or displaying their intricate beauty in single bud vases.
We love this dahlia growing next to decorative dahlia ‘Evanah’, which resembles a soft-pink waterlily, and the bold magenta anemone-flowering dahlia ‘Richards Fortune’.
Dahlia ‘Striped Vulcan’ features rich, honey-yellow petals, uniquely marked with vermillion stripes and splashes. Similar to a firework sparkler, the bright colours on this dahlia are illuminating.
Perfect for brightening up garden borders, this dazzling dahlia will delight all summer and autumn with continuous blooming.
The huge flowers are good for cutting and adding a summery touch to flower bouquets.
Looks fabulous with warm, tropical colours and fellow sun-loving plants, such as crocosmia, ornamental grasses and verbena.
The luxurious, large blooms of dahlia ‘Vulcan’ are an impressive sight when in full flower. The large orange-red flowerheads deliver an impactful blast of colour to garden borders, flowering all summer and autumn . Plant towards the back of a garden border where the blooms will radiate their warm tones.
‘Vulcan’ was the Roman god of fire - a name perfectly befitting this strong, sizzling dahlia.
Looks brilliant when grown next to rich red, purple and orange dahlias, of varying heights and forms.
