There are dahlias for every kind of situation!
From giant exhibitionists to tiny dwarves.
Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' is one of the oldest and best varieties for a perennial garden. It is an opulent plant with dark bronze-green foliage which contrasts dramatically with its semi-double vermilion flowers.
The planted was named in honour of Pritchard Hughes, Bishop of Llandaff in 1924 and was given an Award of Garden Merit in 1928.
In the garden, we love its long flowering period from mid-summer until autumn, especially when planted with other bright blooms, such as: Coreopsis, Crocosmia, Salvia microphylla, Bidens heterophylla, Rudbeckia...
Maintenance: grow in the sun or light shade in good, amended garden soil. Deadhead regularly. When the foliage starts to die down at the beginning of the winter, cut the stems to 15 cm and place the tubers in a leaf compost with vermiculite. Plant out the following spring, to a depth of 10 cm, after the last frosts.
Height: 110 cm. Planting distance: 45 cm.
