Dahlia ‘Wizard of Oz’
Dahlia ‘Wizard of Oz’ is the perfect Dahlia!
The softest ballet pink blooms fading to creamy white at the centre, it is ideal for weddings, so beautiful you can set tables with a few stems of Dahlia ‘Wizard of Oz’ and not much else…
Growing up to 80cm tall Dahlia Wizard of Oz is a handsome plant with glossy deep green foliage. Stocky strong growth makes it the perfect choice for the smaller garden and also performed well in pots.
I have trailed this Dahlia side by side with other similar varieties and Dahlia ‘Wizard of Oz’ out performed them all.
I’m absolutely thrilled that we’ve been able to include Dahlia ‘Wizard of Oz’ in our Annual Tuber Sale this year.

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.
