Dahlia Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka Dahlias are just the thing for those who find some dahlias a bit gaudy. They look like perfect little lollipops with pretty, miniature bright violet/pink pompom flowers lasting right through until the first frosts. The flowers may be small for a dahlia, but these 5cm spheres are produced in profusion and it's a really graceful plant in the border. However if it's larger-flowered dahlias you're after or a different colour, look at the rest of our range of dahlias for sale.

Be sure to plant Franz Kafka somewhere you can admire the perfect symmetry of the flowers with their tightly cupped petals and intense colour - this is the perfect dahlia for a container, by a path or at the front of your border.

Growing Franz Kafka Dahlias

The spherical flower heads complement larger dahlias in a mixed bed or in pots, and they also go wonderfully well with other architectural late-summer border plants such as gladioli and phlox.

Franz Kafka dahlias have small flowers, but that doesn't mean to say they don't look good in a vase! They look best in contemporary settings, arranged minimally - a single stem in a slim crystal vase is all it takes.

Pompom dahlias are one of the most popular exhibition classes, as the perfect shape of the flowers lends itself to competition, usually showing as a single flower, or groups of three or five. Why not reserve a spot at your local show and see if you can win a rosette with Franz Kafka?
