Description

Like the heroic masked vigilante after whom this dahlia is named, ‘Zorro’ is sure to set hearts racing. Whilst the fictional character is famed for his black clothing and wide-brimmed hat, the floral counterpart is clad with enormous flower heads set against chocolate foliage. Tall, dark, and handsome, the enormous crimson blooms of this decorative variety are a thrilling sight amongst beds and borders. The daringly large flowers and sturdy stems also make this an exceptional variety for cutting and exhibiting. Flowering from July to October, ‘Zorro’ will cut a fine figure in your late season display.

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.
