Description

Height x Spread: 75cm x 60cm

Vivid, semi double scarlet flowers float on branching stems high above clumps of fuzzy, crinkled dark green foliage. Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage more blooms .

An iconic and deservedly popular cottage garden plant, 'Mrs J. Bradshaw' adds panache and style to any 'hot' planting scheme, delivering eye popping colour from June through to August.  It combines beautifully with purples, blues, oranges and other reds.  Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' is an excellent follow-on plant. It performs best in a sunny site in a free draining soil. It can tolerate some moisture but not being waterlogged.
