Wine Eyed Jill: Ball Dahlia Tubers

Wine Eyed Jill is a sultry dahlia with soft pinky-peach ball-shaped blooms and dramatic deep purple centres. The dark wine-coloured eyes open into paler peach, apricot, pink and cream petals. Each is a blend of these sunset shades, giving the flowers a delicate, smoky feel. This stunning cultivar will bring elegance and sophistication to any planting scheme for many months over the summer and autumn. As well as creating colourful impact in the garden, she makes an excellent cut flower with strong stems and blooms that last well in a vase.

Growing Wine Eyed Jill

Like all dahlias, she thrives in deep, fertile soil with good drainage. Add stakes at planting time so support is available when it is needed. This compact variety is ideal for container displays and the middle of a sunny border.

Ensure dahlias are watered well in dry periods. Adding a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks will encourage prolific flowering throughout summer and autumn. Dahlias grown in containers need to be kept especially well watered and fed. Deadhead faded flowers regularly.

Planting Companions

Perfect to grow in a cutting garden, this versatile dahlia is also great for the middle of beds and borders. Mix with other luscious dusky dahlias like Cafe au Lait, or pick out those deep purple centres by planting alongside Penstemon Raven or Salvia Amistad. Alternatively, combine her smoky colours with soft grasses like Mexican feather grass or tufted hair grass as part of a prairie-style border.

Did You Know?

Raised in 2013, this charming cultivar is one of a family that includes Red, Yellow and Ryecroft Jill.
