Gallery Art Deco Dahlia Tubers

The luminous double blooms of Gallery Art Deco are a breath-taking addition to any garden with their incredibly sultry sunset shades. The many-layered colour palette is created from the profusion of incurved two-tone petals with soft coral-orange upper sides blending to red on the reverse. The dramatic effect culminates in a deep red eye at the centre of each flower.

Sophisticated and stylish, this popular, award-winning dahlia is a prolific flowerer, and her blooms last well in a vase.

How to Grow Gallery Art Deco

Her compact size and striking flowers are perfect for container displays or the front of a sunny border. Plant in deep, fertile soil with good drainage.

It is important to water dahlias well during dry periods. Adding a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks will encourage prolific flowering throughout summer and autumn. If grown in containers, she needs to be kept especially well watered and fed. Deadhead regularly.

Planting Companions

She simply sizzles centre stage as the star of fiery red, coral and orange container displays. Try combining with annuals like Antirrhinum 'Dazzling Lips Red', Impatiens 'Tumbler Salmon' and Thunbergia 'Arizona Dark Red', or grow alongside other richly-coloured dahlias like Labyrinth, Dark Spirit and Summer Flame in a cut flower border.

Did You Know?

One of the earliest of the 'Gallery Series' along with Gallery Pablo, she was raised by Dutch dahlia breeders Fa Gebr Verwer in Lisse.
In 1998, they introduced Gallery Art Nouveau, a mutant of Art Deco, with the same extravagant open flowers in bold shades of pink, red and purple. This stunning series includes around 30 different varieties, many named after famous painters like Matisse, Rembrandt and Cezanne.

Planting Instructions

With the exception of seed, Dahlias can be planted at three stages: as tubers, rooted cuttings and pot-grown plants.

Tubers can be planted at any time from March onwards. The hole should be at least double the diameter of the tuber laid out on the ground. Incorporate about 25% well rotted compost and add plenty of horticultural grit if drainage is in any way doubtful. Plant one tuber per hole, leaving 60-80cms between plants (depending on final size) and make sure the tuber is covered with 10-12cms (4-5") of soil. This will insulate the tuber against frosts in March-May as they will take a couple of months to show.

Rooted cuttings (available from early April onwards) will need to be potted up and kept in a sunny and frost free place until they are ready to be planted out in mid May. Their treatment then is the same as for tubers except they are planted level with rather than 10cms below the surrounding soil level.

Pot grown plants are not delivered until June, and should be planted out immediately in the same way as an established rooted cutting.

The more you deadhead, the more flowers you'll get.
