Honka Yellow: Decorative Dahlia Tubers

If you're after something a little different dahlia-wise, Honka Yellow is the one for you. Either planted in a sunny border or in a roomy pot on the patio, it will be a real talking point.

She's a gorgeous little dahlia with delicate cartwheel, or star, shaped flowers in a pretty shade of soft yellow. There are eight slim petals on each bloom, radiating straight out from a deep golden centre, and rolling gently inwards towards the tip. The stems and foliage are mid-green.

Growing Honka Yellow 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 Honka Yellow

Plant en masse in bold drifts for the best effect. Mingle with ornamental grasses, tall Foeniculum vulgare, Verbena bonariensis, and yellow achillea for an airy combination that will look great from late summer onwards.
Alternatively, thread ribbons of Honka through other, more punchy dahlia cultivars, such as the golden pompom Sylvia, to get a wonderful contrast of colour and texture.

Did You Know?

This American variety was introduced in 1990 and is the first of ten Honkas, the next of which followed 17 years later from a Dutch breeder. Its official name is simply Honka, but now that there are other colours in the series, it is listed almost everywhere as Honka Yellow for clarity.
