Helena is a Decorative Dahlia which has rich red to purple flowers with white tips. Decorative Dahlias grow to 1 metre and taller. The flowers are about 12-15 cm in diametre.
Dahlia tubers always out perform expectations as these produce masses of colourful flowers in several shapes and sizes during Summer and Autumn. These are fairly easy to grow and should be kept well watered during the warm days of summer. These so called 'old fashion' flowers are coming back into fashion and will never disappoint. For optimum performance the tubers should be lifted every year but in some well drained soils could be left for a couple of years or more before these are lifted and divided.
