David Howard: Decorative Dahlia Tubers

If you're looking for a top-performing tuber that's won awards all around the world, then look no further than David Howard, which flowers for longer, with more blooms, than almost any other variety. 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.

The flowers of David Howard can reach up to 10cm across, with masses carried on each plant. It reaches a maximum height of 1m and has a compact spread of half that.
The flowers are ideal for cutting and are very long-lasting in a vase.

Growing David Howard 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 David Howard

A classic hot border dahlia for going with other dark and rich colours.

Its compact nature and exotic looks mean it is ideal for a large patio pot.

Did You Know?

A British variety from 1960. According to Christopher Lloyd, it “deserves every scrap of the praise lavished on it. Above bronze foliage, it carries a prodigal, non-stop succession” [of flowers, visible] “brightly from afar.”
