Dahlia Cactus Color Spectacle

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Dahlia ‘Colour Spectacle’ is a fine and distinct sight when in spectacular full bloom. 

From July onwards, the huge orange flowers open up from tight green buds.  Gently undulating, velvet petals of tangerine and burnt-orange, appear frost-nipped at their pointed tips.

Mix with white, purple and orange shades, for a dazzling summer display.  The blooms will alight the middle or back of a large border and are perfect for cutting and filling vases with colour and form.

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.
