Dahlia David Howard

If you're looking for a top-performing tuber that's won awards all around the world, then look no further than David Howard dahlias. The fully double flowers with rounded petals are a gorgeous orange-bronze, fading to plum in the centres. If that wasn't enough, the highly divided foliage is dark chocolate and bronze tinged - the perfect foil for the flowers and a worthy winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

If you want a different type of dahlia, why not have a look at our full range? Don't be put off by the huge variety of types of dahlia flower types, as they are all grown pretty much the same way.

The flowers of David Howard can reach up to 10cm across, with many carried on the same plant. It only reaches a maximum of 1m in height on compact plants.

Good in your garden...

David Howard is a classic border dahlia with the double benefits of its glowing flowers and foliage, making it perfect for hot borders full of dark and rich colours - it's almost like a chocolate orange! Trials have proved it is one of the best-performing dahlias, flowering for longer, with more blooms, than almost any other variety.

Its compact nature and exotic looks mean it is ideal for a large patio pot, as long as it is planted in fertile, humus-rich soil and is kept well watered.

The flowers are also ideal for cutting and are very long-lasting in a vase, making them ideal for arrangements.
