Ball & Pompom Dahlia Marble Ball

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Like a dollop of blackcurrant jam rippled through layers of clotted cream, dahlia ‘Marble Ball’ is a sweet harmony of rich, swirling tones and velvety texture. Each enticing bloom is a blend of deep, berry purples splashed against a background of creamy white. The petite, rounded petals are arranged in a spiral pattern, forming neat spheres. Their dappled colouring provides a striking counterpoint to single-coloured blooms, both in your borders and in bouquets. Flowering from July until the first frosts, the irresistible ‘Marble Ball’ offers a visual treat all summer long.

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.
