With a deep pink centre, Dahlia ‘Richards Fortune’ emits shades of lilac and burgundy before fading to a soft blush at the tips.
Very tall, standing over a metre at full height, this dahlia is ideal for planting at the back of a border, such as against a fence or wall to maximum it’s height and impact.
We recommend planting dahlia tubers, such as Richards Fortune, 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.
