Dahlia Sam Hopkins

For that elegant, classic waterlily shape Sam Hopkins is the man for you. As they open the blooms look as if they have tailored from near black velvet and they hold a maroon colour until they are over. However if you're looking for something lighter or less dramatic then look at the rest of our range of dahlias for sale.

Growing Sam Hopkins Dahlias

As a plant, Sam Hopkins is not the biggest dahlia as it tops out at about 100 cm (3ft 3 inches). It will spread about 60 cm (2ft) so it should be grown mid- border in good soil in a sunny spot. However - this is a good thing - it also has good sized flower heads - you can make them bigger by pinching out the side buds as soon as they form. The stems are sturdy but the shape of the flower is such that it collects water when it rains. This makes it heavy so and break easily in a wind. So keep this dahlia in a sheltered spot and stake it very well. Also great in your cutting garden and can be grown in a sheltered spot in a good sized container - at least 10 litres for the best results. Remember to water and feed - especially in a pot. Dahlias are both greedy and thirsty...
