A blazing blend of scarlet and orange will make Dahlia ‘Bishop of Oxford’ a fiery feature in the garden.

Plant this dahlia alongside Crocosmia, Rudbeckia and Penstemon or other red and yellow shades for a hot bed flower garden display.

The dark brown, almost purple, foliage makes an attractive feature in itself, whilst the open topped flowerheads make excellent targets for bees and other pollinators.

We recommend planting dahlia tubers, such as ‘Bishop of Oxford’, 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.

As a peony dahlia, ‘Bishop of Oxford’ is part of a well known group of dahlia named after UK bishoprics, such as ‘Bishop of Llandaff’.
