Sylvia Dahlias are a must if you want to add warmth and contrast to your late summer and autumn borders. A ball variety, its warm orange flowers measure up to 11cm across with petals curving back to give a spherical form. The centre and base of the petals appear a more intense shade. The flowers are carried on highly unusual deep brown stems, held above deep green foliage, complementing the autumnal shades of the blooms.

Try it in large pots - Sylvia is such a compact plant that you can get away with a 7.5 litre pot if you are short of space. Grow it with purple Salvias and Verbena bonariensis for a different look.
Sylvia is also excellent as a long-lasting cut flower, especially with dark or rich-coloured dahlias with different forms.
Ball dahlias differ from pompom types because their flowers are bigger and some appear slightly flattened, instead of spherical.
