Golden Sceptre: Ball Dahlia Tubers

Golden Sceptre Dahlias do exactly what it says on the tin - the flowers are a glowing orb of bright canary yellow, with a darker, richer shade of gold towards the heart of each bloom.

The 10cm double Ball blooms are made up of layers of silky, inwardly curved petals which create a perfectly formed sphere in a honeycomb pattern. Flowers are held on sturdy stems, so they can happily nod in an average summer breeze without damage. They make really good cut flowers - very long-lasting in a vase or arrangement and small enough to be worn as a corsage or woven into floral headdresses for boho weddings. The handsome, dark green leaves set off the blooms perfectly.

Growing Golden Sceptre 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 Golden Sceptre

In the mixed border, their golden yellow colour will sit well with other late-season perennials with warmer-toned flowers.

A Dutch variety from 1938, it is named after the golden ball at the top of a monarch's staff of sovereignty - an excellent gift for royalists, princesses and that African prince who keeps emailing you with a once in a lifetime offer...
