Description

Dahlia Hy Pimento Tubers

‘Hy Pimento’ is a jazzy semi-cactus dahlia. Its fully double blooms are a creamy yellow colour decorated with rich red markings, making it the ideal ‘thriller’ component in floral arrangements. The flowers measure about 10-15 centimetres across.

Dahlia ‘Hy Pimento’ can reach up to 1.4 metres in height and 1.2 metres in spread.

Dahlia ‘Hy Pimento’ makes an excellent cut flower. The buds will not open after picking so the blooms are best cut once they are fully open. Picking first thing in the morning or late evening (when moisture content is high) will significantly extend the life of cut flowers, as will conditioning the freshly cut stems in a few centimetres of hot, not quite boiling water, for an hour or so before arranging.

Dahlias are members of the Asteraceae family of plants. They are clump-forming deciduous tuberous perennials with pinnate leaves and showy flowers in summer and autumn. Dahlias are divided into 14 groups according to their flower shape; ‘Hy Pimento’ belongs to Group 9 and is classed as a Semi-Cactus Dahlia. Dahlias are toxic to cats and dogs.

Dahlias are easy to grow and generally free of pests and diseases. You might occasionally need to tackle pests such as slugs and earwigs and diseases such as powdery mildew but good gardening practices, such as appropriate weeding and feeding, together with our range of organic garden products will help keep your dahlias healthy.

‘Hy Pimento’ dahlia makes an eye-catching addition at the back of a border, or to the cutting garden. Team with dinner plate dahlias such as ‘Cafe au Lait’, peony flowered varieties like ‘Bishop of York’ and cactus types like ‘Rip City’ to create a scheme with rich texture and colour.
