Dahlia Cactus Red Pigmy

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Dahlia ‘Red Pigmy’ brings a glamorous, dramatic touch to the garden.  Flowering in rich and luxurious, saturated red, the explosive spiked blooms are unmissable.

A bed of compact and bushy, lush green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for the crimson blooms to gleam - flowering in profusion from July until late autumn.

Combine this striking dahlia with warm burgundy and plum shades in a border or large container for an attractive, refined show.  Dahlia ‘Red Pigmy’ also works well with softer pinks and bright fuchsia for an exuberant, tonal 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.
