Sunday spotlight: Dahlia ‘Ferncliff Illusion’.

Dahlia ‘Ferncliff Illusion’

This stunning white and purple beauty was introduced in 1994 by D. Jack of Ferncliff Gardens, in Mission, British Columbia, Canada.  A “dinnerplate” dahlia with blooms up to 28 cm in diameter, plants grow to 130 cm in the garden – so give them plenty of space (and support)!  To preserve them in cold climates like mine, you’ll have to lift the tubers in autumn and store over winter.

If you have any plant suggestions for future Sunday Spotlights, please post them in the comments or Tweet me!  I’d be happy to feature them!  🙂
