Delicate, pretty pink hues circle a golden brown heart with Dahlia ‘Bishop of Leicester’.

As a Peony Dahlia, wide flowerheads allow bees and other pollinators to enter. Meanwhile, a splash of pink will light up the garden borders.

An award winning, attractive, pink Peony Dahlia.

We recommend planting dahlia tubers, such as Bishop of Leicester, between March and June into fertile, well drained soil 15cm deep and 60cm apart. Position in a sunny location for maximum flowering and impact. After planting, water in well and monitor during the Summer months. Aim for one good soak once a week to the base of the plant.

Some tall and large flowerhead dahlia varieties may need staking for support during the flowering season. Use an all-purpose general plant feed for bigger and brighter blooms. Deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers through till first frosts.
