Dahlias have enjoyed a great resurgence in recent years as all round feature plants ~ by choosing your varieties and their associated flowering period, you can have cut flowers, boarders and terraces full of colour well in late summer and early autumn.
Dahlia's can be grown in most soil types and situations and can also be grown in pots ideal for patio's and smaller gardens. There are also many dark foliage varieties which can add contrast to garden settings.
