Description

Meteorite Dahlia Tubers

‘Meteorite’ is a decorative dahlia with large, fully double yellow flowers. The foliage is equally striking – a dark greeny-bronze, almost black colour which contrasts dramatically with the bright yellow blooms.

Dahlia ‘Meteorite’ 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; ‘Meteorite’ belongs to Group 5 and is classed as a Decorative 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.

‘Meteorite’ dahlia is perfect for adding a splash of sunshine to mid-border settings. Team it with other sun lovers like echinacea and rudbeckia, and foliage plants such as heuchera and grasses. In the cutting garden it makes a great partner for vibrant dahlias like ‘Bishop of Llandaff’.
