DESCRIPTION

Cactus dahlia ‘Park Princess’ adds a soft and feminine flourish to pots and borders in summer, with upward-facing, urchin-like pink blooms.

From July until October, dahlias famously bloom with vigour, thriving in rich soil and full sun.

Long and pointed, rolled petals of rose-pink make up the extraordinary large blooms of this stunning dahlia.  The astounding flowerheads appear opalescent as petals fade to almost-white.

As a bedding dahlia plant, compact ‘Park Princess’ is ideal for container planting, and for embellishing the front to middle of the garden border.

CARE GUIDE

To grow Dahlias, select a sunny spot with well-drained soil, and dig a 30cm deep hole. Plant the tuber 10cm below the soil surface, spacing multiple tubers 45cm apart, or 90cm for taller varieties. Water consistently, maintaining moist but not saturated soil and protect new shoots from slug damage with eco-friendly methods. Feed plants during the blooming period with liquid plant food. Provide support for stems which will reach 60-90cm tall depending on variety. Enjoy spectacular blooms from late summer until first frosts. Cut or deadhead the flowers regularly for a continually flourishing display. Once blooming has finished, cut back foliage before lifting, drying and storing the tubers in peat-free substitute, in a frost-free place until the following spring.
