Dahlia Berger's Record

Berger's Record Dahlias are far from subtle. Instead, this iconic red semi-cactus variety has flowers which, with their large heads of masses of quill-shaped pointed petals, look like exploding fireworks. Browse the rest of our extensive Dahlia range.

For dahlias that only grow to about 90 cm tall, Berger's Record can carry blooms of up to 20cm across on sturdy, upright stems, although you will have to nip out the side buds to get them this big. Most people prefer to have more flowers that are slightly smaller, unless they are for exhibition.

Berger's Record Dahlias In Your Garden

This flower has quite a presence in the border, especially alongside other fiery-coloured dahlias and late-summer flowering perennials.

Bergers Record are quite compact plants and so will do well in pots but however you grow them it is important to stake them well and avoid a windy spot, as the heavy flower heads can snap off. Keep well watered, fed and remember to deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers to form.

They make wonderful subjects as cut flowers - just three in a vase is all that's needed, and they're long-lasting, too.

A favourite for the show bench, you'll often see Berger's Record Dahlias in local late summer flower shows. If you want to compete, don't forget to disbud to get the biggest flowers possible!
