Dahlia Le Castel

Pure perfection... that's Dahlia Le Castel. It has the most delicate pure white waterlily-type flowers, some can have a hint of pink but that only increases its allure. but if it is not for you there are plenty more to choose from in our full dahlia list.

The blooms, which look a bit like huge gardenias, are 10-15 cm in diameter and are held on attractive long, dark stems above a background of deep green, divided foliage.long stems. The plant grows to a height of about 1.2 metres.

We think that Le Castel is the best white waterlily dahlia there is and the Royal Horticultural Society seems to agree as Le Castel holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Le Castel Dahlias In Your Garden...

In the garden, use Le Castel dahlias in the middle or towards the back of mixed borders. Its white flowers - held about 4' high which means you will need to stake well - will stand out, especially when light levels are low and in the evening. Like almost all white flowers Le Castel dahlias will go with just about anything but because some blooms can have a hint of pink we recommend looking at companion plants which sit in that part of the spectrum. it also looks fab growing with taller grasses.

Le Castel makes an excellent cut flower and looks great in everything from simple white arrangements to brighter affairs. And perfect in bridal bouquets and wedding arrangements, thanks to its pure colouring.

Disbudded the flowers increase in size making it a great dahlia for your local gardening society autumn show...
