Rocco: Pom Pom Dahlia Tubers

Rocco Dahlias have been winning hearts for decades, and it's no wonder! This little character has almost perfectly spherical, small pompom made up of layers of silky, inwardly curved petals. The symmetry of their shape is complemented by the intense colour.
Browse our other Pom Pom Dahlias or our full range of Dahlias here.

As with many dahlias with complex colouring, the blooms have been described variously as fuchsia, magenta, beetroot, purple, lilac, reddish-purple and burgundy. Whichever description you think best, the flowers start the season off at the more purple end of the spectrum, lightening towards fuchsia as the days shorten.

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

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

Growing Rocco Dahlias

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.

In sheltered locations, they probably won't need staking.

It is generally more convenient to put support stakes in at planting time, rather than leaving it until there is foliage in the way.

Planting Companions for Rocco

Although a cottage garden classic, it fits in well with contemporary planting schemes too, thanks to its architectural flower form.

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