'Tahiti Sunrise' is a truly magnificent and highly attractive variety of the cactus type dahlia. Produces large, spiky flower heads of a soft yellow. Each long, narrow petal has a fuchsia-pink tip, creating a spectacular bi-coloured effect. Quite a compact specimen, growing up to 60cms in height, perfect for the front of a border or even 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. 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.
