Description

Height x Spread: 75cm x 45cm

A dwarf cultivar, 'Moonfire' bears single flowerheads of yellow-orange petals tinted red at their base around a dark red eye ringed with gold. This contrasts beautifully with its luscious dark bronze foliage.

The almost tropical colour combination makes this Dahlia a definite must for the front of a hot border. A magnet for bees and butterflies, 'Moonfire' also makes a superb container plant. It performs best in nutrient and humus rich, well-drained soil in full sun. In colder areas, lift, dry and store tubers frost free once its foliage has been blackened by the autumn frosts.

Available for Mail Order from May - End of July
