Dahlia Rocco

Rocco Dahlias have been winning hearts for decades and it's no wonder! This little character has almost perfectly spherical pompom made up of layers of silky, inwardly curved petals. The symmetry of their shape is complemented by the intense colour. However Rocco is a small-flowered dahlia so for something larger you might want to browse the rest of our range of dahlias for sale.

As with many dahlias, because their colouring can be very complex, the blooms of Rocco dahlias have been described in many ways - as fuchsia, magenta, beetroot, purple, lilac, reddish-purple and burgundy. This may be because the flowers start the season off at the more purple end of the spectrum, moving towards fuchsia as the days shorten.

Each pompom is only 5cm across but they are produced in profusion, so size is made up for in quantity. The purple-flushed sturdy stems are good for windier gardens and it's a delight to see their little heads bobbing in the breeze.

Using Rocco Dahlias in your Garden

Although a cottage garden classic, Rocco fits in well with contemporary planting schemes too, thanks to its architectural flower form. It will be happy in mixed beds and pots, as long as those thirsty dahlia tubers have rich soil and plenty of water.

The wonderfully vibrant colour of Rocco dahlias means they mix well with pale pinks, purples and pastels, as well as hues from the hotter end of the spectrum.

Like most dahlias, it makes an excellent cut flower for vases and arrangements but Rocco's small size means it is great for table vases where space is tight.
