Dahlia Nescio

Nescio Dahlias will bring a searing splash of colour in your garden to lift tired pots or borders, is the plant to go for. Not too big to be overpowering - the flowers only reach 6.5 cm in diameter - these pompom spheres of bright blood red will inject movement and colour into almost any design.

Some gardeners struggle with bright reds so if Nescio dahlias doesn't appeal to you for this reason, why not check out the full range of dahlias we grow. We stock many different types and colours to suit any garden.

Nescio was introduced in 1974 and has proved to be one of the most popular reds on the market, set off by attractive intense green foliage.

Ideas for growing Nescio Dahlias...

At a compact 1m tall, Nescio will grow well in pots of 10-15 Litres in size as long as it is well fed and watered. Keep flower buds forming by regularly cutting or deadheading plants.

It will also look good in mixed borders, but be sure to plant at least three in a group to provide the best effect.

Like most dahlias, Nescio makes a excellent, long-lasting cut flower and is small enough to be used in a corsage or headdress. They're also great in vases, bouquets and floral arrangements.
