Sam Hopkins: Waterlily Dahlia Tubers

For that elegant, classic waterlily shape, Sam Hopkins is the man for you. As they open, the fairly big blooms look as if they have tailored from near black velvet, and they hold a deep maroon colour until they are over.
Browse our other Waterlily Dahlias or our full range of Dahlias here.

He is not the biggest dahlia, topping out at about 100cm (3ft 3 inches) and spreading to about 60cm (2ft) so he should be grown mid-border. Also great in your cutting garden.

Features

  • Colour: Maroon with touches of black
  • Foliage: Green
  • Flower Size: 10-15cm
  • Type: Waterlily
  • Cutting: Yes
  • Height/Spread: 100 cm x 60cm
  • Flowering: July to November
  • Outdoor Planting Months: March to July

Growing Sam Hopkins Dahlias

If growing in a container, you'll need at least a 10 litre pot.

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.

The stems are sturdy, but the flowers collect water when it rains, making them heavy, and thus the stems break easily in a wind. So a sheltered spot is ideal, and stake him well.

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