Dahlia Alfred Grille

semi-cactus dahlia tuber Dahlia ‘Alfred Grille’
Position: full sun
Soil: fertile humus-rich soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: July to October
Hardiness: half hardy

Big long-lasting semi-cactus flowers top the upright stems for many months from midsummer creating a dazzling dispaly well into the autumn. Each flower is a sumptuous blend of salmon pink and orange which merges into yellow towards the centre. The petals are long and thin and curl backwards on themselves creating a wonderful spikey effect. Overall they look very impressive especially when seen against the backdrop of the deep green foliage.
