Mystery Day is a stunning, decorative type Dahlia that produces up to 20 big 7-8'' flowers in a striking combination of purple with white tips. Each specially selected clump produces at least 15-20 colossal blooms on tall, sturdy stems. Grows to a height of around 110cms, perfect for the middle of a border where it will provide a long season of colour from mid-summer though til autumn. Makes sublime cut flowers that will bring a touch of the exotic indoors.
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.
