Berger's Record: Semi-Cactus Dahlia Tubers

Berger's Record Dahlias are far from subtle. This iconic red semi-cactus variety has flowers which, with their large heads of masses of quill-shaped pointed petals, look like exploding fireworks.

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

Growing Berger's Record Dahlias

All dahlias do best in deep rich soil with good drainage in a sunny spot. If it is windy they will need staking. They are greedy, thirsty plants so will need watering in dry spells, and they will always flower that little bit better if there is a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks.

They 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.

It is generally more convenient to put support stakes in at planting time, rather than leaving it until there is foliage in the way.

Planting Companions for Berger's Record

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