Description

Named after the Dutch modern painter Piet Mondrian, dahlia ‘Mondriaan’ brings the essence of the artist’s studio into your garden. Famous for his bold, abstract works, Mondrian also painted over 150 naturalistic depictions of flowers. He was fascinated by their structure – this eponymous decorative dahlia makes it easy to see why, with many layers of petals arranged in a mesmerising pattern. The stunning blooms are daubed with brush strokes of pink, yellow and lilac, produced continually from July until the first frost. Transform your garden into a gallery, where avant-garde art meets nature in an exciting exhibition of 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.
