Nescio: Pom Pom Dahlia Tubers

Nescio Dahlias will bring a searing splash of bright blood-red in your garden to lift tired pots or borders, and inject movement and colour into almost any design. It's not overpowering, the flowers are about 6.5 cm wide, set off by attractive intense green foliage. It has proved to be one of the most popular reds on the market.

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

Like most dahlias, it makes an 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.

Growing Nescio Dahlias

At a compact 1m tall, Nescio will grow well in pots of 10-15 litres.

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.

Did You Know?

It was introduced in Holland in 1974. Nescio is Latin for "I don't know" and was the pen name of Dutch writer Jan Hendrik Frederik Grönloh (1882-1961).

It can also be listed as a Miniature ball, rather than a Pom Pom. Potato, potato.
