Dahlia Ludwig Helfert

A stunning plant for a variety of garden uses, the semi-cactus Ludwig Helfert Dahlia produces huge blooms of orange, progressively turning deeper towards the centre with a bright green heart. The spiky flowers can reach a whopping 20cm across, held on stout stems above dark green, pinnate leaves. However, the petals are the stars of Ludwig Helfert, fully double and pointed, turning backwards to create a tubular effect, highlighted by centres of tangerine. There's a hint of bronze too, to make this the perfect autumn colour combination. Have a look at the rest of our range of dahlias.

Good In Your Garden...

Ludwig Helfert dahlias really stand out in a mixed border, especially if they are surrounded by exotics, succulents and deeply coloured architectural plants. They really deserve to be the star of the show!

It is also popular as an exhibition variety, so if you fancy a go at the late summer flower show, this apricotty orange gem could be your route to success.

As with most dahlias, it is an excellent cut flower, and you don't need many to make an instant impact in a vase - or skill to arrange them! Be sure to cut them when the flowers are fully open, as they won't open any more once separated from the plant.
