Gerrie Hoek: Waterlily Dahlia Tubers

If you want to grow an elegant classic in delicate shades, Gerrie Hoek Dahlias should be on your short-list. They are waterlily types, measuring 10-15cm in diameter and looking very like the aquatic flower. Shaded shell pink, rounded petals get paler towards the outside of the flower, complemented by light yellow hues among the heart petals, which look painted on. All of this "pops" against the contrast of its dark, strong stems and foliage.

It is an early flowerer, as early as mid-June if conditions are right, an added bonus! It goes on flowering all summer and is a favourite of exhibitors in the late summer flower shows.

This is one of the taller varieties at 1.2m and those long stems, together with a long lifespan, make for an excellent cut flower, either in a vase or in a bouquet.

Growing Gerrie Hoek 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 Gerrie Hoek

It is tall for a Dahlia, so the middle of a mixed border is a natural place for it, but close enough so you can appreciate the wonderful markings on the petals.

The wonderful colouring makes it an excellent flower to tie together warm and cool shades in your borders or flower arrangements. It looks particularly good with contrasting shapes to its exotic flowers, such as Verbena bonariensis and ornamental grasses, which will provide a wonderful backdrop to let the blooms take centre stage.
