Details
Why we love it:
  • Supposedly a cross between a dahlia and a chocolate cosmos, Dahlia Mexican Star (formerly known as Mexican Black) is a newly bred variety that shares much in common with a chocolate cosmos, including a soft chocolate fragrance
  • It's dark chocolate red in colour with beautiful single flowers on a bushy plant
  • Use this dahlia to add elegance and beauty to the middle of a border, or plant in containers


What you need to know:
  • 1 x Dahlia Mexican Star - 3 Bulbs
  • Herbaceous perennial
  • Height: 90cm
  • Position: Prefers full sun or partial shade
  • Planting time: plant when winter is completely over, when there are no signs of late night frosts. A good time to plant dahlias is between late April and mid-May
  • Flowering period: July - October/ November
  • In mild areas with free-draining soil, Dahlia tubers can be left to overwinter in the ground or pots, but in colder areas lift and store to protect them from the worst winter weather. Do this as soon as the first frosts have burnt the leaves back. Then cut back the top-growth to 15cm (6in) and lift the plants from the ground. As much soil as possible is cleaned off, before trimming any straggly, fine roots. Store them in boxes of dry compost to overwinter them in the garage, although any cool but frost-free place would do. The tubers are replanted in the spring once the danger of frosts has passed
  • Ensure Dahlias are watered daily during dry spells. Do not water over winter
  • From Kapiteyn
