Daily Flower Candy: Dahlia ‘American Dawn’

Reading time 2 minutes

It’s no good, I tried to hold back, but I just had to share this ravishing new dahlia which has started to bloom at The Watch House. It’s called D. ‘American Dawn’. Sight of its luminous blooms is certainly enough to get my day off to a great start. From a bud of bright peony-pink emerge petals the colour of a summer sunrise. Of all the dahlias I’ve grown this season, D. ‘American Dawn’ is by far the strongest and healthiest, with many flowers yet to come. In a garden where plants have to be robust, loud and proud to be noticed, this is the perfect early riser.

Dahlia ‘American Dawn’ is available from Sarah Raven and Crocus.co.uk in spring.

      1. These are beautiful! What size pots do you keep these in? I need to do the same, as my heavy clay gets waterlogged, but have no idea how to do this with the larger specimens. Help would be appreciated! Thanks
