Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ is one of the best single dahlias available, from which many of the ‘Bishop’ dahlias have been bred. It has dark bronze green foliage and contrasting bright red, single to semi-double flowers. It flowers its socks off right up until the first frosts, and the single, open nature of its blooms make it attractive to bees. It’s perfect for cutting. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ at the front of a sunny border, in moist but well-drained soil. After the first frost, cut off the top growth, dig up the tuber and leave it to dry for three weeks. Overwinter it in an airy, frost-free place, and replant the following spring. Alternatively, grow dahlias in pots and move them indoors in autumn.
Height and Spread up to 90cm.
