Dahlia 'Waltzing Mathilda'
We have wanted to get our hands on this coveted variety for years after hearing rave reviews from floral designer Susanne Hatwood of The Blue Carrot in England. Probably the most striking variety in our field, this coral-peach single-flowered bloomer has the most brilliant raspberry colored centers that draw in everyone who sees them. The vivid flowers are set against a sea of dark foliage and bloom abundantly, without being deadheaded, all season long. A marvelous variety for cutting and a spectacular addition to the flower border. A must grow!
Flower type: single
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-100 days
Plant spacing: 12-18”
Pinch: when plants are 12” tall
Cut when blooms are ¾ of the way open, but not overly ripe. To do this, check the back of each flower head, looking for firm and lush petals versus papery or slightly dehydrated ones. Place into water with hydrator, or sear stem ends by placing into 160-180° water and allow to cool for 1 hour. Blooms will last 5-6 days.
