Midsummer season can only mean one thing in the World of Wild at Heart – Dahlias. The Dahlia is considered to be one of the most spectacular garden flowers and is a symbol of grace, endurance and creativity. Originally a native of the mountainous regions of Mexico and introduced to Europe in 1789, the Dahlia offers great variety, texture, scale and scent...
Categorised by the rings in its petals, each Dahlia differs in size, height, petal shape, colour and rows of petals. There are numerous varieties of Dahlia available and our new seasonal bouquets are filled with these seasonal delights. Café Au Lait Rose, Linda's Baby and Black Fox Dahlias are just a few of this seasons favourites and can be found in our new English Garden Collection...
A huge hit on Instagram, these larger than life blooms offer fluffy-like flowers and are featured in our Wild & Free bouquet - wonderfully mixed with lilac climatic, memory lane, flowering mint and complimentary seasonal foliage.
The perfectly peach-pink tones of this dahlia variety beautifully compliment the spherical shape and flawlessly blunt petals which curve inwards creating the ball-like form. The Wild Meadow bouquet presents Linda’s Baby alongside an array of blush lisanthus, hot pink clematis, pink wax and seasonal foliage.
The beautifully velvety and rich mahogany hues of the Black Fox dahlia steal the show in the Woodland Walk bouquet, the generous fully double blooms are co-ordinated with Secret Garden rose, pink astrantia, sanguisorba and seasonal foliage.
On receiving your beautiful Dahlias, unwrap them and re-cut the stems at a 45° angle to encourage water absorption. Remove any foliage that would otherwise be below the waterline and place in cool, clean water in your favourite vase. Most flowers will perform and last best if kept in temperatures between 10°c and 15°c and they will benefit from regularly changing the water. It is also advisable to keep your Dahlias out of direct sunlight.
