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. Too bright? Then you can find more subdues varieties in the rest of our extensive 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

Unsurprisingly, this is a flower that 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 showbench, 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!

Did You Know...

Introduced in 1964, you'll also find Berger's Record listed as Berger's Record and Berger Record, plus with and without apostrophes! To make matters worse, Record may also be spelt Rekord - the RHS Nomenclature Committee is overworked, but this is surely one for them to sort out...
