Dahlia Cornel

Cornel's middle name is perfection. With its deep-red velveteen petals and neat pompom shape, it's one of those flowers you can't help but marvel at. Each neat petal curves inwards to form a tube, and they're packed together tightly. So tactile! Take a look at the rest of our Dahlia range here.

The colour is spectacular: the deepest, richest red, with a hint of purple at the centre. The stems are about a metre long and the flowers are about 10cm across. They make wonderful cut flowers, and keep well in a vase. The stems and foliage are deep green.

In the garden

Growing up to 1.2 metres tall, Cornel is best planted towards the back of a sunny south or west-facing border, where it will provide a glorious backdrop to other late-flowering, cottage-garden favourites such as penstemon, Verbena bonariensis, lavender and helenium.

Cornel combines well with other dahlias; try planting it in generous groups with other dahlias that have apricot shades, like the dinner plate shaped dahlia Fairway Spur, or another pompom variety such as Burlesca.

Cornel is tall, so put stakes in early in the season, and then tie in the flower stems as they grow. Keep your dahlias well-fed and watered. Remember that the more you pick, the more your dahlias will flower.

Did you know?

Dahlias were farmed by the Aztecs, who ate the tubers. The flavour is said to be somewhere between celery, apple and water chestnut, which sounds delicious, but they never caught on as a crop elsewhere. This variety was introduced in 1982.
