Dahlia City of Leiden

If you're short of space but want a plant to make maximum impact, City of Leiden Dahlias tick all the boxes. It only grows to 60cm with a spread of 45cm, but it still packs a punch with spiky, semi-cactus flowers in an astonishing magenta pink suffused with coral, making the blooms seem to glow. The flowers are 10cm-15cm across, making a tremendous show. Have a look at our full Dahlia range here. 

If that's not enough, City of Leiden has the most glorious foliage - divided and dark, flushed with bronze, a perfect foil to the flowers. It's worth growing for the leaves alone!

It is a semi-cactus variety, meaning it has double flowers with many long, pointed, petals which curve in on themselves, giving that spiky look.

Getting The Best From City of Leiden

This is one of the most versatile of dahlias and a reliable performer too, even in a bad summer. As it's so compact with upright but bushy growth, it is ideal for pots on the patio and will perform well until the first frosts, as long as it is kept well watered, fed and staked (the flowers are large for the height of the plant).

This is a dahlia you can grow even in exposed areas, where taller varieties would be battered by the wind. Use it in a sunny mixed border and clash its hot colours with other dark and variegated foliage plants, especially deep purples, oranges, reds and yellows. It looks great with herbaceous perennials such as Salvia and contrasting Heuchera, as well as the pale greys of lavender, catmint (Nepeta), Artemisia and curry plants.

The flowers are good for cutting too - make sure you gather them when they are three-quarters open, as they won't open any more in a vase.
