Dahlia Honka Verrone's Obsidian

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



For creating drama and elegance in the garden, almost-black dahlia ‘Honka Verrone’s Obsidian’ is the perfect choice.  Rich, velvety petals converge around a golden heart, packed full of pollen and nectar – a haven for pollinators, including bees and flittering butterflies.

Gently fragranced and wonderful for cutting to add a star-shape to flower arrangements.  Display as single stems in tiny bud vases to marvel at the intricately formed blooms.

Charming ‘Veronne’s Obsidian’ has been granted a prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the RHS, for winning looks and excellent garden performance.  Flowers from July until late autumn and looks brilliant woven into a bold, jewel-toned border.

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.
