The existing range of these magnificent long-flowering plants known for transforming any garden or landscape design into a blooming oasis has been revitalized by the addition of a new series. Dahlia Revelation by Dümmen Orange delights consumers with its semi-double flowers in five fresh summer colours. Light and playful, the five varieties add cheery-coloured accents and provide a rich source of food for insects with their nectar. A real boon for growers, retailers, landscapers and consumers alike!
An enduring blaze of colours
Revelation: Making known something that was previously secret or unknown. The secret revealed by the Revelation varieties is their pure irradiating magic. They combine the incredible, enduring blaze of colours associated with dahlias with the light, natural feel of summer, right through fall.
Five fresh summer colours
Large, semi-double flowers sit loosely over compact, dark green foliage, which creates a wonderful contrast and provides the perfect floral backdrop. This throws the five different flower colours even more firmly into the spotlight – the brilliant yellow of Dahlia Revelation Yellow, the vibrant orange of Dahlia Revelation Orange, the bright pink of Dahlia Revelation Pink and the striking red of Dahlia Revelation Red. The two-tone Dahlia Revelation Salmon Bicolor has a bright yellow centre of disc florets that is emphasized by the deep salmon of the surrounding petals, which lighten toward the outer edges.
Food for insects
The new series is a real feast for any eye and an absolute treat for insects. Although semi-double, the flowers provide plenty of food! The series’ long flowering season from around June to the first frost also ensures insects have a vital source of food in the fall.
Uniform and well branching
For growers, Dahlia Revelation also has a few advantages up its sleeve. This uniform series is well branching and requires fewer PGRs during cultivation than regular dahlia varieties. The plants have a medium-vigorous habit and can be grown either in the greenhouse or outdoors. They are ideal for production in 17-19 cm containers.
Wide variety of uses
The upright-growing varieties are medium-early and ideal for (mixed) planters and in garden beds and borders. The attractive Dahlia Revelation are a real eye-catchers either planted as solitary varieties or in combination with other bedding and balcony plants or perennials.
The new series also has excellent potential for both gardening and landscaping projects. As well as being suited to the garden, balcony or patio, the very uniform Dahlia Revelation varieties are ideal for landscape planting schemes and prove to be reliable repeat bloomers, extending the season in these settings.
