Soft pink-salmon blooms with a Catus or Semi Catus shape. Dahlia ‘Henriette’ is a variety with delicate flowers that blend and tone so beautifully.
Producing abundant flowers, Dahlia ‘Henriette’ is the flower I reach for to add unique texture and form to bouquets and displays, its always the one I’m first asked to name.
A handsome garden plant so admired though our Instagram window so I’m thrilled to be able to share some tubers with you to grow in your own gardens.

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
