Dahlia 'Striped Ambition' is quite a rare and unique variety of cactus type Dahlia. It produces stunning, spiky flowerheads that are a lavender pink colour with irregular streaks of deep purple running through the petals. Blooms from midsummer to mid-autumn. Good for planting en-masse and also amongst other colourful plants and Dahlia's. Will be sure to make an impressive statement in your garden. Grows to a max height of around 100cms.
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. 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.
