Dahlia White Star
Dahlia White Star is a stunning creamy white cactus dahlia which flowers very freely on 120cm plants. The petals have a slight contortion or twist in them which gives the flowers a slightly frilly look. Extra support is useful with this variety. The white colour of Dahlia White Star will combine well with a multitude of other dahlia varieties
As with most dahlia plants it flowers freely if deadheaded regularly.
Dahlia White Star should be planted in sunny sheltered locations in free draining humus rich soils. Incorporating well-rotted manure or compost is beneficial. On heavier soils incorporate sand and/or grit and compost to aid drainage. Plant tubers outside from April onwards or for earlier flowers plant in pots in a greenhouse or conservatory in March. Protect fresh growth from late frosts.
Taller varieties may need extra support with canes and twine. Dahlia plants will flower from July right through to the first frosts. Dahlia tubers need frost protection during the winter. In warmer drier gardens it is possible to leave them in the ground otherwise lift the Dahlia tubers and store them somewhere dry and frost free.
