This decorative dahlia is sure to attract attention. Arabian Night is a beautiful velvety, deep maroon dahlia, dark and mysterious as its name suggests. Perfect for planting amongst red and purple varieties of flowering plants. Makes excellent cut-flowers and also suitable to be grown in patio containers. Will add a bold splash of colour to your garden during the late summer and early autumn months, when the garden tends to look a little tired. Grows up to 40''/100cms tall.
This plant is supplied as a single tuber. Best time to plant is in April. To plant them, dig a hole at least 20-30cm square and around 20-30cm deep for each one. Cover the base of the hole with 10cms of compost, or manure and give it a good dousing with a full watering can and then plant the dahlia at a depth of 15cms. You may need a stout stake, not just a bamboo cane, to support each plant and it is a good idea to knock this in first and then place the plant by its side. Plant in a sunny spot and keep moist yet well-drained. It will need to be lifted in winter - once the foliage dies back simply dig it up and store in a cool, frost free location.
IF ORDERING EARLY, PLEASE NOTE THAT WE SHIP THIS ITEM BETWEEN MARCH & THE END OF APRIL TO ENSURE IT ARRIVES IN PRISTINE CONDITION, AT THE IDEAL PLANTING TIME.
