Ludwig Helfert Dahlias: Semi-Cactus Dahlia Tubers

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. As with most dahlias, it is an excellent cut flower, and 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.

Growing Ludwig Helfert Dahlias 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.

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 Ludwig Helfert

He really stands out in a mixed border, especially surrounded by exotics, succulents and deeply coloured architectural plants.

Did You Know?

A Dutch variety from 1978. One of our team has nicknamed this plant Loo Dig Hell Fart, and laughs every time they say it. This has been going on for years, and shows no sign of losing its comedic value.
