The Dahlia Bishop of Llandaff has been a firm favourite for years. Producing deep red flowers from July to the first Autumn frosts, over deep green/purple floiage. That is often the end of October and even into November. It’s flowers are produced repeatedly all summer. Just keep picking to produce more flowers.
You could have vases full of Dahlias all summer.
Dahlia Bishop of Llandaff grows up to 40″ (100cm) and is ideal for adding a rich hue to your summer borders.
Dahlias originate in Mexico and thus won’t survive our cold winters. The tubers should be lifted after the first frosts and stored in paper bags in a frost free building until late winter early spring.
