Product Description ( Dahlia Dixie )
A beautiful dahlia from the Melody range you will love! It belongs to the group of ornamental dahlias. Bred in 1999. Originator: Verwer, Gebr. (Netherlands). Distinguished from other dahlias by its compact size, abundance of flowers in bright colours and long-lasting blooms. In a short time it will enliven your garden, patio or terrace.
The basket-shaped inflorescences are large, fully-mauve and almost round. They reach up to 10-15 cm in diameter. They are composed of both lingual and tubular flowers. The reed flowers (petals) are flat, slightly twisted and bent back towards the stem. This makes the inflorescence unusually lush. The tubular flowers are unsightly. The colour of the flowers is bicoloured. The petals are light creamy with violet-purple tips. The leaves are a deep green colour. The bright flowers contrast spectacularly against the background of the foliage. The bush is compact, upright and branchy. The stems are sturdy and densely pubescent. The plant starts to flower in early summer and produces a profusion of flowers until frost. The plant is about 60 cm tall.
Melody Dixie® requires a sunny location. Fertile soils with a slightly acidic or neutral reaction are preferred. Shrubs do not need to be tied. The removal of the faded flowers prolongs flowering. Flowers do not suffer from rain. This variety is particularly good as a cutter as it lasts a long time in bouquets. Dahlias are heat-loving plants. They can withstand temperature drops as low as -5°C frost. For this reason, dig out the tubers for the winter and store them in slightly damp peat, in a dark and cool place. Flowering period: June to October.
