Dahlia Bellini - flower bulbs and perennial plants from Holland
Product Description - Dahlia Bellini
A medium-early dahlia with semi-flowered flowers in deep pink and pale pink. It captures the heart at first sight. It was developed more recently in 2004. Originator: Verwer, Gebr. (Netherlands).
Heleri Bellini is a cultivar of the group of ornamental dahlias. A low shrunken variety in the Gallery range. The main advantage of this lovely plant is its long flowering time. The first buds usually appear in late June and July and flower until frost, sometimes in October-November. Inflorescences are small, up to 10-15 cm in diameter. Inflorescences consist of lingual and tubular flowers. The uvular flowers are flat, slightly twisted and bent back toward the stem. This makes the inflorescence unusually lush. The tubular flowers are unsightly. The leaves are a deep green colour. Their shape is oval. The bright flowers contrast spectacularly against the background of the leaves. The bush is short, upright and branched, with sturdy, densely pubescent stems.
All dahlias have similar soil requirements. This variety is no exception. It grows well in a sunny, wind-protected location. It does not need to be tied. The plant requires a lot of moisture. Suitable for creating borders and for growing in containers. In winter, after the first autumn frosts, dig the plant out and trim off the stems, leaving 10-20 cm above the ground. Place the tubers in boxes with sawdust, peat or sand. Store the tubers in dry, frost-free rooms at a temperature of 5-8 °C. Germinated tubers should be planted in the garden in May, once the threat of frost has passed. Removing the faded flowers prolongs flowering. Suitable for cutting. The plant is 30-45 cm tall and up to 40-45 cm wide.

How to Plant - Dahlia Bellini
Guide and tips for planting Dahlia Bulbs and Tubers
Choose the planting location: Dahlia plants prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.
Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.
Plant the bulbs or tubers: Dig a hole that is about 12-16 cm deep and place the Dahlia bulb or tuber with the "eyes" facing up. If planting multiple bulbs, space them at least 24-36 cm apart.
Cover the bulbs or tubers: Cover the Dahlia bulbs or tubers with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs or tubers: Give the bulbs or tubers a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Dahlia plants prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Stake the plants: Depending on the variety and size of Dahlia plants, they may need to be staked for support. Insert stakes into the ground near the bulbs or tubers before they start growing to avoid damaging the plant later on.
Monitor the bulbs or tubers: Dahlia bulbs or tubers typically take about 2-3 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Dahlia plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
