Dahlia 'Cha Cha' is an extremely colourful and attention grabbing variety of Cactus Dahlia. Large flower heads of 10-15cms in diameter, bear spectacular white, quilled petals each with a crimson to pink flush. Each flower head has a distinctive yellow centre, creating an almost tri-colour effect! Blooms from mid-summer right through to until Autumn. Will reach a max height of approx. 105cms. Perfect for unusual cut flowers and brightening up the patio in pots and containers.
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.
