Dahlia 'Blue Bayou' is an anemone-flowered dahlia, growing to around 1m tall. The foliage is mid-green, on dark red stems. In late summer large flowerheads appear, with a single row of rose-pink petals surrounding a dark red centre.


Plant requirements

Dahlias, as grown in the garden, are hybrids of plants originating from Central America. They tend to prefer full sun and free draining soils that are watered regularly.  Dahlias are late flowering, often into mid-November, providing a splash of colour when other plants are past their best. Their splash of colour does require work: not only do the taller varieties require staking, all require regular feeding and deadheading, and their tubers need to be lifted in the late autumn and stored.
