Single Flowered Dahlia Happy Days Cherry Red

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Compact dahlia ‘Happy Days Cherry Red’ is a petite and showy, scarlet-red single-flowered dahlia – perfect for pots, window-boxes, and colourful bedding schemes.

Flaming daisy-like blooms contrast dramatically against handsome, dark foliage which is deeply cut and allows the large velvet flowers to pop.

Attractive to bees, butterflies and other pollinators, this striking dahlia will flower with gusto for months on end, adding vibrance and cheer to your garden.

Dahlia ‘Happy Days Cherry Red’ combines well with long-lasting grasses, taller architectural plants and dark foliage perennials.

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.
