Ball Dahlia 'Petra's Wedding' is one of Elke's Faves this season. Here's what she has to say:
Classic, elegant, white and simply beautiful. This Ball Dahlia has been on my favourite list for a while. That’s because I love white flowers and even more if they are great cut flowers. Petra’s Wedding is both! Give it a try, Ball Dahlias are a showstopper in any garden.
Resembling those knitted balls on Grandma’s slippers, Ball & Pompon Dahlias are fully double flowers that are perfectly globe shaped. Expect an abundance of blooms approximately 6” – 14 cm in size. Originating from Mexico and Guatemala, these were the flowers of Inca kings and despite their royal origins Dahlias are among the easiest plants to grow in the garden.
They are a wonderful source of cut flowers and will provide a veritable cornucopia of colourful blooms for your bouquets from mid summer until the first frost. Easy to grow as they are, Dahlias are susceptible to cold so be careful not to plant them too early and be sure to dig them up after the first frost and store them in a frost-free place.
